Koomira was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis in December of 2018. This autoimmune disease affects 3 in 1 million children each year. We always knew our girl was unique, but now she is RARE! Research is underfunded for rare diseases like this, but we continue to stay strong for a cure. Thank you for your love and support!
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 cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement. It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more. And there is no cure....YET!
With support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure. Last year, Cure JM was able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace! Your support now will keep that momentum going.
Join us for the 2nd Annual Northern California "Walk Strong to Cure JM" family fun event and fundraising walk!
