Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening disease affecting 2-4 children per million in the U.S. alone. Juvenile Myositis (JM) causes the body's own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, and even death.
JM can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.
And there is no cure…YET.
But you can help. Generosity like yours has helped Cure JM Foundation invest more than $8 million into critical research, advancing our understanding of the genetic and environmental risk factors of Juvenile Myositis, the most effective drug treatments, and common factors of life-threatening heart and lung complications
Our goal is to never, ever let another child suffer from Juvenile Myositis. And with your help, this goal is well within our reach.
