EVENT: Austin Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2017
In summer 2004, Victoria was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis. JM (Juvenile Myositis) 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. The first few years after her diagnosis, Victoria was hospitalized over 40 times to treat this disease. Unfortunately, there is no cure...yet.
Thanks to a wonderful medical team and supportive family, Victoria now has very few symptoms and is medication free! On February 19, 2017, Victoria and her husband Stephen will be running the Austin Half Marathon to raise money to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis.
Join a fundraising team or make a gift now and you will be bringing us closer to a cure for JM.
