Stephanie Brown-Bryant, 58, rests in the living room of her home in East Naples. Just before Memorial Day weekend, Charlie Bryant, 24, decided that he needed to take his mother to the hospital while she was visiting him in Providence, RI  because she was acting much different than her usual self. After multiple tests and days in the hospital, she was eventually diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in mid-June.
