BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
You can help find a cure for Jayla!
I am joining with families from around the world to fight Juvenile Myositis and find a cure for my daughter Jayla. We've had our lives turned upside down when Jayla was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis on May 19, 2014.
Jayla had what we thought were growing pains for almost a year. The day that I was told my baby has Juvenile Dermatomyositis our world came crashing down. Jayla has days that she is so weak, she can't even get herself up off the couch. She has to now deal with IV's and needles frequently in hopes to be in remission one day. Jayla now takes chemotherapy weekly and high dose steriods daily. The side effects have been very challenging. I hope no other kid ever has to go through this.
Juvenile Myositis is a life-threating and incurable disease affecting 17,000 children in the U.S. alone. It causes a child's immune system to attack healthy tissue and cells, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, organ failure, and even lead to death. juvenile Myositis can affect virtually any system in the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and MORE.
And there is no cure....YET.
