This October, the Schultz family will join families from around the world to fight Juvenile Myositis and find a cure for our daughter, Lillian!
In March of this year, Lillian Schultz was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis and our family's life changed. Due to the rarity of her disease, it took months of doctors’ visits for a diagnosis. Thankfully, a local allergist caught it. Since then Lillian has had MRIs, Bone Density Scans, monthly blood draws, and a port placed inside her chest to allow for infusions of medications. Her new life revolves around daily pills, weekly infusions, and monthly doctor/hospital visits. Please know, several of Lillian’s recent treatment decisions have been made based on the research that Cure JM supports. Six months into the disease, Lillian, is responding well! She has been able to participate in her normal activities. However, there is always the fear and uncertainty.
Juvenile Myositis is a life-threatening and incurable disease affecting one in every four million children. Juvenile Myositis (JM) causes the body's own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues, which can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk, disfigurement, and even death. JM can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.
And there is no cure…YET.
But you can make a difference! Please give today and help find a cure for Lillian and others like her.
