THE STORY:

Please help us find a cure for Jack

Jack was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis this summer.  He was just two years old.  Right now we are so grateful that he is responding well to his treatment and we know we are one of the lucky ones.  Through Cure JM, we've met families who are struggling financially, struggling to hold their families together and even coping with the loss of their child to this dreadful disease.  

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.

 

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 Jack
