Make a gift to Cure JM Foundation in honor of the Hicks/Borchers Wedding and make a difference for kids like their friend 7-year-old Elle Ellis.
Elle has been fighting Juvenile Myositis since she was just 4-years-old.
Juvenile Myositis (JM) is a life-threatening disease that causes a child's own immune system to attack healthy tissue and cells. It can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, organ failure and even lead to death. Juvenile Myositis can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.
And there is no cure…YET. But that's where you come in.
Last year, support from friends and family like you allowed Cure JM to drive JM research forward at an unprecedented pace, funding more than a two dozen research grants and two treatment/research centers. Foundation-funded researchers have recently identified the major genetic risk factor for all forms of Myositis which is paving the way for better treatments, better outcomes, and a cure for Juvenile Myositis.
Thank you for making a difference for Elle!
