Every day, children are diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis, or JM. Juvenile Myositis is a group of autoimmune diseases Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis (JPM). Juvenile Myositis causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and other long-term complications. And there is no cure…YET.
And that’s where you come in.
The weekend of February 17-19, 2017, over 100 Cure JM families from around the United States and the world will be attending the 10th annual Cure JM National Educational Conference and Fundraising Event in Austin, Texas. The conference is a weekend-long event designed to help JM Families and Physicians connect while sharing the latest information in JM research and treatments.
As part of the weekend, Cure JM families will participating either the Austin Marathon or the Cure JM Texas Walk for Kids to raise awareness of JM and raise funds for JM research.
Please consider making a gift now. Over 90% of each gift goes directly to Juvenile Myositis research and education programs, so your gift will bring us closer to a cure.
What could be more heroic?
