Robert spent a lifetime on Clearwater Beach with his beloved family and friends. He never let anyone leave the beach until we found a bear claw seashell first! Those were happy times. Sadly, Robert died last year from a rare and sudden brain disease called CJD. It is a fatal illness affecting 300 Americans a year. Now, I am actively painting to help fund research for a cure, and I symbolically put a bear claw seashell into every painting, since it was Robert's favorite. I know the cure for CJD can be found, because it is like the special seashell- we just have to look for it! Your purchase of a beach painting today will make the search possible. Thank You!
I lived on Clearwater Beach. I loved on Clearwater Beach. I laughed on Clearwater Beach. I lost on Clearwater Beach. My heart is full. I lived, loved, laughed with my friends- one of whom I lost. Now I am dedicating paintings to that friend. His name is Robert E. Dodd.
"November 12 is International CJD Awareness Day. They call it a one in a million disease. Much is unknown about why and how it happens and because the disease moves so rapidly many go undiagnosed.
As of now, there is no cure, no prevention, it is 100% fatal. It destroys the brain in a fast and unforgiving way that leaves loved ones feeling completely hopeless. Please help us bring awareness to this disease and post this on your wall. My dad was truly one in a million".
