THE STORY:

You can be a hero to a child with JM.

 

Each year, approximately 2 to 4 children in a million in the United States are diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis (JPM), the rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases collectively known as Juvenile Myositis (JM).  JM causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement. In some severe cases it can even be fatal.  And there is no cure…YET. 

 

And that’s where you come in.

 

On January 17th, 2016, families will be participating in the St. Pete Beach Classic to raise awareness of JM and raise funds for JM research.  It’s all part of Cure JM’s 2016 National Educational Conference and Fundraiser, a multi-day event designed to help JM Families and Physicians connect while sharing the latest information in JM research and treatments.

 

Please consider making a gift now.  Over 90% of each gift goes directly to Juvenile Myositis research and education programs, so your gift will bring us closer to a cure.

 

What could be more heroic?
