BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
This October, Grandparents are joining together to help their grandkids fight Juvenile Myositis!
My grandson Eldon is 6 years old and has battled Juvnenile Myositis most of his life. He has suffered through thousands of hours at the hospital, multiple surveries, hundreds of doctors apointments and all-day infusions and has given blood hundreds of times, all before starting Kindergarten. All because of this terrible disease, Juvenile Myositis.
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!
