THE STORY:

You can be a hero to a child with JM.

 

Each year, approximately 2 to 4 children in a million in the United States are diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis (JPM), the rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases collectively known as Juvenile Myositis (JM).  JM causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement. In some severe cases it can even be fatal.  And there is no cure…YET. 

 

And that’s where you come in.

 

On January 17th, 2016, families will be participating in the St. Pete Beach Classic to raise awareness of JM and raise funds for JM research.  It’s all part of Cure JM’s 2016 National Educational Conference and Fundraiser, a multi-day event designed to help JM Families and Physicians connect while sharing the latest information in JM research and treatments.

 

Please consider making a gift now.  Over 90% of each gift goes directly to Juvenile Myositis research and education programs, so your gift will bring us closer to a cure.

 

What could be more heroic?

 

Learn more about the conference here or contact us at info@curejm.org or (760) 487-1079.

 

Kory was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis when she was just four years old.  Kory’s battle with this disease has been long, hard and painful.  Juvenile Myositis  (or JM) is a life-threatening disease that causes a child's own immune system to attack healthy tissue and cells, which 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 together we can make a difference!  Please click here to give.  Our family’s goal is to raise $2,000 for life-changing research.

On January 31st, researchers and physicians from across North America will be submitting NEW research proposals to Cure JM.  Your gift now will help make sure that Cure JM is able to fund these new research proposals.  Help us hit our family’s goal to raise $2,000 so that no research is left on the table.  

Together, we can find a cure for Kory.

With endless gratitude, Bret and Sissy

 

FYI, Cure JM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis (JM).  Cure JM Foundation is the ONLY organization that solely supports Juvenile Myositis and is the largest charitable supporter of Juvenile Myositis research. And every dollar makes a direct impact – over 90% of donations go directly toward research or educational programs.  With your help, we are making progress towards identifying the causes, best treatments and a cure for Juvenile Myositis.
