Event Father-in-law died from SCJD
My father in law, Donald Barnhard died last year from
Sporadic CJD. He started having problems with concentration
and pains and loss of balance sometime in January. By the
end of February/early March, he was in so much pain. He was
an amazing person and the most wonderful grandparent to my
daughter. We miss him dearly. I dont understand why he was
creamated at the Mayo clinic in Arizona. Everything I read
says that a brain biopsy has to be done for proper
diagnosis. My mother in law and husband were in Arizona
with Don when he passed away. The doctors told them that
they couldn't do a brain biopsy because they didnt want to
be infected by whatever killed him, yet they diagnosed him
with SCJD.
