Jan 02, 2020
Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a spouse. On January 30, Danielle Gibson from Lebanon, Tennessee had to say goodbye to her beloved husband and father of her four children.
Three days before he passed, Danielle sat by his side and sang him his favorite hymn, "Amazing Grace." The video of the song was posted on social media, giving Danielle support from all over the world.
According to Inside Edition, Tony Gibson was just 33-years-old when he passed on after suffering from a rare condition called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. It was in December 2017 when Tony first began exhibiting symptoms. He would randomly forget things and become so disoriented that Danielle had to begin labeling items around the house.
The issue began to deteriorate rapidly 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.
This rare, degenerative brain disorder is caused by coming into contact with contaminated meat or contracting it genetically. Sadly, there is no cure for this fatal disease and death usually happens within a year of diagnosis. Danielle was able to stay strong for Tony and stand beside him as he battled the progressive symptoms of this terrible disease.
Before he passed, Danielle sat by his side and sang him his favorite hymn, "Amazing Grace." The video of the song was posted on Facebook. Danielle created a crowdfunding page in honor of her husband to help spread awareness about the disease and raise their children.
