Join us for the Inaugural DC Walk Strong to Cure JM on June 4th!
We are walking to find a cure for Juvenile Myositis!
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, we were able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace – including important JM research we are funding right here at the NIH and George Washington University Myositis Center!
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.
