Walking for a Cure

BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation

EVENT: Walk Strong to Cure JM - Austin

EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2017

THE STORY:

Join the fight against Juvenile Myositis. 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.

Last year, support from friends and family like you allowed Cure JM to drive JM research forward at an unprecedented pace, funding more than a dozen research grants and two treatment/research centers. We 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 Walk Strong to Cure JM!
