This October, families from around the world are joining together to fight Juvenile Myositis!
Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening and incurable disease affecting 17,000 children and adults 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.
Morgan has been fighting Dermatomyositis for four and a half years now. She has improved but still remains on 21 pills a day, a shot a week, two infusions by IV a month, and misses an average of 5 days a month of school due to symptoms. We are very thankful for all the research that has led to these treatments, and research is needed to learn more about the disease to create new treatments.
And there is no cure....YET.
But you can make a difference! Please give today and help find a cure.
Cure JM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis. Cure JM is the ONLY organization that solely supports Juvenile Myositis and is the largest charitable supporter of JM research.
With the rarity of this disease, your gift is vital to permitting further studies into finding the cause, best treatments and a possible cure. Thanks to prior fundraising, we now have significant samples available for new research and extensions of the prior research. We are hopeful that with funding, research can go to the next level.
Our goal is to never, ever let another child suffer from Juvenile Myositis. And with your help, this goal is well within our reach!
