EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
This October, families from around the world are joining together to fight Juvenile Myositis!
THIS WILL BE OUR FOURTH YEAR FUND-RAISING! In honor of the recent news that Aidan is indeed STILL IN REMISSION, we have set a goal to raise $500 this year... Any amount donated is appreciated. If you are unable to donate, please think about sharing this link of your page in hopes others may be able to contribute. We would greatly appreciate it as it would be awesome to obtain our goal.
OR you can even consider joining our team and fund-raise in tandem with us. We won't mind (wink-wink.) The more money and awareness we can raise, the better the opportunity we have in FINDING a CURE.
We are a small and mighty group of dedicated parents, grandmas- grandpas, aunts-uncles, siblings, and friends who have united in a common goal. Will you please consider this worthy cause?
WHAT IS JM? 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.
Our goal is to never, ever let another child suffer from Juvenile Myositis. And with your help, this goal is well within our reach!
