Losing the person of your heart is one of the hardest things you can experience. Danielle Gibson said goodbye to her husband and father of four children.
Tony Gibson was just 33 years old when he passed on after suffering from a rare condition called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. In 2017, Tony had the first symptoms. he first started to forget things where he left them in the house.
The disease progressed quickly before doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville were finally able to come to a conclusion. After a month of extensive testing, Tony was diagnosed with the disease on May 2.
This disease increases more when it comes into contact with contaminated meat. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease and death comes quickly for almost a year.
Danielle was Tony’s biggest supporter and stayed by his side during this devastating illness.
Three days before he died Danielle sat next to him and started singing his favorite song “Amazing Grace.” The video went viral on Facebook and people from all over the world gave her support.
Although Danielle misses her husband a lot, she is happy that he is not in pain.
