EVENT: Walk Strong to Cure JM - Chicago

EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017

THE STORY:

Brooklynn was diagnosed with JDM, Juvenile Dermatomyositis, in October, 2015. JDM is part of the JM family of autoimmune diseases. This family is very rare and currently does not have a cure. The good news is that medicine is progressing and treatments are improving. Without the help of research money and educating doctors to recognize this serious disease quickly, progress cannot continue. Our personal goal is to help raise money so that some day there will be a cure. Right now, this is a very serious disease that leaves these children battling their entire lives. Please help support our walk by either joining our team or making a donation so progress can continue.  More info on JM, Cure JM and the walk is below.

 

We are walking in the Walk Strong to Cure JM to find a cure for Juvenile Myositis! Juvenile Myositis (JM) is 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. 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 – including important JM research we are funding right here at Lurie Children’s! Your gift now will keep that momentum going. Every donation goes straight to Cure JM, and over 91% of all funds raised go directly to research. Can we count on you to help today?
