Be a hero and join the fight against Juvenile Myositis!
We are a group of parents & grandparents raising funds to support much-needed Juvenile Myositis research -- including JM research right here at Seattle Children's Hospital!
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.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 by October 8th.
Support from friends and family like you has allowed Cure JM to drive JM research forward at an unprecedented pace in the last year, funding eight research grants and two treatment & research centers. With your support, foundation-funded researchers have 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.
But we still hear heart-wrenching stories of pain, suffering, and loss and we know that we have more work to do.
Please give now and help us hit our goal to raise $50,000 for JM research!
