THE STORY:

This year marks marked the 10th anniversary of our Rachel being diagnosed with this terrible disease. She's been on medications EVERY DAY since then and has never been in remission.

This year is the 10th anniversary of our family finding and joining the Cure JM organization. I thank God for this organization and the dedicated families who are part of it. We are all drawn together by one common goal - finding a cure!

This year we also lost more precious children to this disease.

We need your help!! No donation is too small - please consider donating on behalf of our Rachel so we can find a cure.

========================================================

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!
