Hi Friends & Family, As many of you know, on January 28, 2015, my Vivian was diagnosed with JDM (Juvenile Dermatomyositis). JDM, is an auto immune disorder that causes muscle weakness. Vivian went through numerous exams trying to get the right diagnosis while becoming weaker and weaker with each passing day. She eventually stopped walking. She could not get out of bed. I would carry her every morning and lay her on the couch. She went without being diagnosed for 3 months. When Vivian was finally diagnosed, she received aggressive treatment. Now she's on 6 medications daily, which includes steroids and a chemo shot. There is no cure for JDM. It can stay in remission, however. Please join me in raising for such an important cause to me and others to help fund research and awareness for this rare disease. In May of 2017, I will be walking for Vivian. Help me reach my goal $1000 for Vivian and others suffering from JDM to fight back and gain their healthy bodies back. No child should ever go through such a terrible disease.
Thank you so much for your support, Janet
