BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
We are joining the fight against Juvenile Dermatomyositis Myositis! On October 23rd, we are holding a fundraising event at Chucke Cheese Overton Park Plaza, 4860 SW Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76109(By Hulen) to raise money for research to help find a cure for Natalye. if you are not able to attend but will like to help by donating any amount will help!!
Natalye was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis Myositis in January 28,2015 and it has been a very, very hard year for her.. Juvenile dermatomyositis Myositis (or JDM) is a 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 goal is to raise $1000 for life-changing research.
In January, 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 $1000 so that no research is left on the table. In some cases, $1000 would be enough to fund an entire pilot study – this is our chance to really help Natalye.
And although this has in many ways robbed our baby of their childhood, we know it could be much worse. Through Cure JM, we have met other families who have been ripped apart by the financial and emotional stress of this disease. And -- far worse -- we will meet parents who have lost their children. But through it all we remain hopeful -- together, with your support, we are making a difference. And we know that as Natalye grows we will tell her what you did for her and she will join us in our thanks to you.
With endless gratitude,
