We are raising funds for Cure JM in memory of Tanea. Tanea lost her battle with Juvenile Myositis (JM) on September 20th 2015, 6 days before her 15th birthday. Juvenile Myositis 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. Your gift now will keep that momentum going. Every donation goes straight to Cure JM and straight to helping make sure that no other child has to suffer like Tanea did.
