This holiday season, please give in Memory of Mason.
When a child is diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis, their young life is turned upside down. This life-threatening disease changes everything. The child faces a body fighting itself. It can attack any system of the body. There are no FDA-approved treatments. There is no cure...yet.
Imagine a child watching with envy while other kids do things that they can’t do. Imagine missing out on a normal childhood because of hospital visits, treatments, and side effects. Imagine living in fear of the sun.
Imagine a child asking, “why me?”
None of us would ever wish that on a child.
We’re not powerless. We can help.
You can give these children hope. Hope for better treatments. Hope for a normal childhood. Hope for a brighter future. Hope for a cure.
Cure JM has made extraordinary progress in Juvenile Myositis research and programs, but there’s so much left to do. Cure JM’s Strategic Research Plan calls for new support for drug discovery and funds to get those new treatments to our kids.
We can accomplish these goals, but we need to take action.
Like most rare diseases, Juvenile Myositis research is funded almost entirely from grassroots efforts like this fundraiser. Every single dollar makes a difference.
Thank you for giving hope this holiday season.
