This October, families from around the world are joining together to fight Juvenile Myositis!
This October marks Kailyn's first year having JDM. We have experienced many ups and downs...Kailyn started treatments and was hospitalized for 9 days. Could hardly walk or feed herself. The disease affected her skin, her liver, her muscles and joints. She used a wheelchair and slept in a hospital bed at home. Could not attend school. After being on treatments for months and many hours of therapy we are amazed that she is doing so much better! She is back on her feet and dancing and playing the flute which we thought would not be possible. CURE JM has been a wealth of information to us and has provided funding for research for so many kids debilitated by this rare disease! We feel very blessed that Kailyn is doing well but it can all change in a moment. Please help us find a cure so that no other child has to suffer.
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.
And there is no cure…YET.
But you can make a difference! Please give today and help find a cure.
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.
With the rarity of this disease, your gift is vital to permitting further studies into finding the cause, best treatments and a possible cure.
Our goal is to never, ever let another child suffer from Juvenile Myositis. And with your help, this goal is well within our reach!
