BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
You can be a hero to a child with JDM.
Isabella was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) one year ago when she was just four years old. Juvenile Myositis (or JM) 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. She is currently on chemotherapy, steroids and monthly infusions to help put her into remission.
And there is no cure….YET!
No amount is too small. Please think about donating $10-$100. We need money for research.
And that’s where you come in.
On January 17th, 2016, families will be participating in the St. Pete Beach Classic to raise awareness of JM and raise funds for JM research. It’s all part of Cure JM’s 2016 National Educational Conference and Fundraiser, a multi-day event designed to help JM Families and Physicians connect while sharing the latest information in JM research and treatments.
Please consider making a gift now. Over 90% of each gift goes directly to Juvenile Myositis research and education programs, so your gift will bring us closer to a cure.
What could be more heroic?
