Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening and incurable disease affecting 17,000 children and adults in the U.S. alone. Juvenile Myositis (JM) causes the body's own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, and even death. JM can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more. There is no cure…YET.
But you can make a difference! Please give today and help find a cure for Vince.
Cure JM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis. Cure JM is the ONLY organization that solely supports Juvenile Myositis and is the largest charitable supporter of JM research.
CrowdRise is a platform for online fundraising. They are organizing the Holiday Challenge, where charities raise funds and compete to win prizes of $250,000 for their cause.
With the rarity of this disease, your gift is vital to permitting further studies into finding the cause, best treatments and a possible cure.
Last year’s Holiday Challenge WIN is making JM research possible at 9 different research locations, pushing critical JM research forward. Thanks to families like yours, Cure JM has funded research that has identified several other immune response genes as risk factors for Juvenile Dermatomyositis. This important research is made possible by every-day families like yours and mine! Please help and donate today.
