THE STORY:

Jennifer Coe wrote -

We are walking in the Walk Strong to Cure JM to find a cure for Juvenile Myositis! Our youngest daughter, Kennedy, has been suffering from JM for almost 7 years - more than half of her life! She was only 6 when she was diagnosed and does not remember what it feels like to be a healthy kid. There are currently ZERO FDA approved treatments for JM - this needs to change, not only for Kennedy but also for ALL the kids suffering from JM. 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, Cure JM was able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace – including important JM research that is being funded right here in Illinois, at Lurie Children’s Hospital! 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.
