Allie was diagnosed with JDM (Juvenile Dermatomyositis) on June 13, 2016. To say our lives changed drastically is an understatement. However, our girl has met this disease head on, battled like a champ, and found the good in every step of this journey. There is no cure. This is something that will likely have a major impact on the way Allie lives the rest of her life. It can be painful. It can be debilitating. It can be deadly. We so desperately want a cure....and these kids fighting this battle NEED a cure.
