Help raise money for Cure JM!
One year ago, my sister was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis (JM), a devastating autoimmune disease that only around 2 to 4 in a million children in the US are diagnosed with. Since then, I have watched my (10-year-old) sister suffer relentlessly because of this awful disease. From the rashes and weakness caused by JM to the absurd amounts of medicine (including frequent IVs and shots) and its terrible side effects, the last year has been one of the worst we've had.
My dad and I decided to cycle from San Francisco to Los Angeles (a total of 500 miles), starting on August 14, to raise money for Cure JM, the only foundation dedicated to funding promising research to find a cure for JM so that no more children have to suffer as my sister has.
