My name is Mike Jezdimir and I run the Mike L Jezdimir Transverse Myelitis (TM) Foundation. TM is a demyelinating disorder of the spinal cord. TM attacks people around the world and paralyzes them; regardless of age or gender. Their degree of recovery depends on how fast they get diagnosed and how fast they get treatment. It hit home with me that one the biggest problems we face as a foundation is that very few people even doctors have ever heard of TM. I have several stories on our webpage of kids, toddlers and teens that have contracted this disease, a disease for which there is no cure.


The mission of the Mike L. Jezdimir Transverse Myelitis Foundation is to promote awareness and raise money to support inflammatory spinal cord research. Our objective is finding a cure and prevention.  100% of profits from our fund raising efforts will be donated research.  We feel confident that by working with scientists, researchers and rehabilitation experts  that one day we will be free from a disease that is so traumatic on patients and families. We need to bring awareness to this disease like they have with cancers, autism, AIDS, ALS, MS and diabetes.
