As you know, Matthew has suffered from Juvenile Myositis for ten years. Those of you who knew Matthew when he was six may remember when he was so weak that he could barely move. It took 3 months for him to be diagnosed. Thanks to meds and a great doctor, he is the strong, happy Matthew that we know today.
Cure JM has a dozen or so studies that they are funding. I'm particularly excited about a study to educate doctors about JM so that a diagnosis can be made quickly and early in the illness. There are also studies regarding the effectiveness of currently available medications. It could be that one of those medications will result in remission for Matthew and other JM kids.
