My family became involved with Cure JM Foundation when my granddaughter Madison, at the age of 7, was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis.
She was hospitalized for 6 months. Three of those months were in pediatric intensive care the other 3 in a pediatric rehabilitation hospital. She was critically ill.
Juvenile Myositis can affect virtually any system of the body (heart, lungs, skin, muscles, etc.). JM has left her muscles weak and there are side effects from her long term medications. Luckily, Madison has done well with the excellent medical care and rehabilitation she continues to receive. Other children have not done so well and many have even lost their lives.
Please help us find a cure so that no other child will have to suffer like my grandaughter Madison.
