I've been blessed with such amazing family and friends who have continued to support me through my journey with JDM. Since my diagnosis, they have been constantly by my side helping me through every obstacle this journey has thrown at me for the past 15 years, including my recent relapse in the past few months.
My mom has also worked on the Board of Directors for the Cure JM Foundation for over 10 years and they have done so much for children and families all across the country who suffer from this disease. I am raising money in honor of the tireless work she has done for this amazing organization.
With your help, we can continue to fund research for Juvenile Myositis in hopes that one day, kids won't have to deal with the struggles and hardships that JDM brings but hopefully have a cure.
JOIN US IN JUNE 2019 FOR OUR 3rd ANNUAL WALK STRONG TO CURE JM
WHEN: Sunday, June 23, 2019
WHERE: The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus
2815 Jorie Blvd, Oak Brook, IL 60523
Registration opens at 9:00am
Event & Festivities: 10:00 - 12Noon
This event is free and open to the public.
All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues. It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more. And there is no cure....YET!
But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.
Our first two Walk Strong to Cure JM - Chicago combined raised over $175,000.
With this continued great support from families and friends we were able to fund research at 20 prestigious research institutions, helping advance JM research at an unprecendented pace!
Your gift now will keep that momentum going. Every donation goes straight to Cure JM, and since inception over 90% of all funds raised go directly to research.
Join the team and fight against JM/JDM today!
