THE STORY:

Please help us find a cure for Everett.

Our son Everett was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis in Nov. 2013 and our world changed forever. We'd never heard of this disease and had no idea how to combat it. Through excellent care at his children's hospital and Everett's own strength, he's doing well. But *there is no cure* and many children do not have the same outcome. Please read below to learn more, and help if you can.

Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening disease affecting 2-4 children per million 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 help.  

Generosity like yours has helped Cure JM Foundation invest more than $8 million into critical research, advancing our understanding of the genetic and environmental risk factors of Juvenile Myositis, the most effective drug treatments, and common factors of life-threatening heart and lung complications

Please help us find a cure for Everett.  With your help, this goal is well within our reach.
