This October, families from around the world are joining together to fight Juvenile Myositis!
I am joining with families from around the world to fight Juvenile Myositis and find a cure for my daughter Adelyn. Adelyn was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis, a variation of JM, in July of 2013 when she was just seven years old.
Juvenile Myositis and all its variations are life-threatening and incurable diseases affecting 17,000 children in the U.S. alone. It causes a child's own 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 of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.
And there is no cure…YET.
But you can make a difference! Please donate today and help find a cure by clicking on the red donate button and following the prompts.
