We will be headed to Chicago on May 4th to join in the walk for Cure JM on May 6th! I know only a few of us are able to go, so we ask that you consider a donation of any amount to benefit Cure JM! All funds raised go towards research and to continue working towards a Cure!!
As many know Maddie was diagnosed with this disease a little over 2 years ago and she has battled and continues to battle through it like a rockstar! She had been recieving monthly treatments for this as well as her daily medications and weekly shots! Your donation is much appreciated and 100% of it goes direct to CureJM and is put towards very important research and clinical trials to help in finding a cure for this disease. This disease is rare so funding is sometimes hard without the help of fundraising from everyone!! In February we will head to Austin for the annual conference again, so we are looking forward to that. The fact that Maddie gets to be around other kids that have this same disease is such a huge part of why we started attending and we can connect with other parents as well!! Any donation is always appreciated and 100% of funds go towards research!!
JOIN US IN MAY 2018 FOR OUR 2ND ANNUAL WALK STRONG TO CURE JM
WHEN: Sunday, May 6, 2018
WHERE: St. James Farm Forest Preserve, Warrenville, IL
This event is free and open to the public.
All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues. It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more. And there is no cure....YET!
But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.
Last year, the inagural Walk Strong to Cure JM - Chicago raised over $96,000 and over 1300 people joined the event to show support for all those fighting JM/JDM in our greater Chicago area.
With this great support from families and friends we were able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping advance JM research at an unprecendented pace -- including important JM research right here in Chicago a Lurie Children's!
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.
Join the team and fight against JM/JDM today!
