THE STORY:

Please help us find a cure for Morgan

Morgan was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis when she was just two years old.  In her short life she has endured thousands of hours of hospitals, treatments, IV mediations, chemotherapy, steroids and all the side effects that go along with dozens of medications and therapies.  She deals with more fear and pain than any child ever should.  She is getting ready to tackle her 59th infusion and over 20+ hospital admissions.

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.  

 

And there is no cure…YET.

 

But you can make a difference!  Please give today and help find a cure.  Please help us hit our goal to raise $2,000 for research by October 5th.

 

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.

 

Please help us find a cure for Morgan!
