BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
ORGANIZER: Cure JM Foundation
Please help us find a cure for Adrian.
When Adrian was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis our world fell apart. Watching him suffer has been the hardest thing we have ever done. And it is so much harder for him -- he endures pain, weakness, horrible treatments and side effects.
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 Adrian. With your help, we can, and will, find a cure.
