Hi, I'm Ava! I was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis when I was two years old. This serious and rare autoimmune disease effected my muscles and skin. Fortunately, I am in remission after lots of medication and treatments but other kids are still fighting it. And some kids lose the fight. I've been really lucky. I still need to be very careful with sun exposure because it could cause a flare at any time. Please join me in a 1 mile walk at the University of MN campus on May 19 for the Minnesota Inaugural Walk to Cure JM. A donation would be really helpful if you can afford it. Every dollar gets us a little closer to a cure. Thank you!
