Plus, YOU have a chance to accelerate JM researchSign up.


Typically, a family will give a sample for the child and or parent (saliva or blood). Then you can take saliva kits home to take saliva samples of any relatives who weren't able to attend.  Working with top genetic researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Cure JM is seeking to better understand the genetic causes of JM. This research is important to help find better treatments and a cure.  

 

Join us: Walk Strong to Cure JM - Central Florida:

 

This event is free and open to the public.  

 

All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues.  It can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement.  It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.   And there is no cure....YET!

 

But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.  Last year, we were able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace!  Your support now will keep that momentum going.
