BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
ORGANIZER: Cure JM Foundation
Our son, Parker, was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis (JM) at age 4 in 2002. His courage in the face of adversity inspired us to take up the fight against this devastating disease. We founded Cure JM Foundation with another family in 2003, and since then, have invested $8.6 million in research and educational programs.
JM is a rare and life-threatening disease that can attack virtually any system of the body. It literally took away Parker's childhood. He spent over 500 days in the hospital. We don't want any other child to experience that.
Our goal is to never, ever let another child suffer from Juvenile Myositis. With your help, we believe it's a goal within our reach.
