DAYS TO GO: 50
Please support us in the 2nd Annual Walk Strong to Cure JM at Marymoor Park October 7th!
We are walking in the Walk Strong to Cure JM to find a cure for Marissa! As you know, Marissawas diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis (JM), a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues. It can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement.
It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more. There is currently NO cure and NO FDA approved treatments.
But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure. Last year, we were able to fund research at 25 prestigious research institutions, including Seattle Children's, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace.
Your gift now will keep that momentum going. Every donation goes straight to Cure JM, and over 87% of all funds raised go directly to research.
Can we count on you to help today?
