THE STORY:

Please help us find a cure for Maci

Our sweet daughter Maci was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis last year and has been fighting so hard ever since.  Her diagnosis turned our world upside down as we had to face the fear, uncertainty and pain of watching our child suffer with a rare, lie-threatening disease.

Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening and incurable disease affecting 17,000 children and adults 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 make a difference!  Please give today and help find a cure.

 

Cure JM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis.  Cure JM is the ONLY organization that solely supports Juvenile Myositis and is the largest charitable supporter of JM research. 

 

With the rarity of this disease, your gift is vital to permitting further studies into finding the cause, best treatments and a possible cure.

 

Please help us find a cure for Maci!
