Hello Friends and Family of Drew!
Welcome to the 2019 Holiday Giving Challenge to Cure JM!
If you have been following Drew's fundraising, you know that twice a year we work with the nonprofit people at Cure JM to raise money toward researching a cure for Juvenile Myositis.
Drew has been continuing to improve. This year he was able to play lots of competitive golf, ran cross country and is playing basketball. We are incredibly happy with his progress. With that being said, it would not be possible without the help of so many on his treatment team.
We would like to take this time to thank all those continue to support Drew and those with JM.
Thank you! Drew, Dan, Deana and Danae
Below is the Cure JM story for the 2019 challenge:
This holiday season, give children hope for a brighter future.
Leading up to Giving Tuesday on December 3rd, your gift has an even bigger impact!
Thanks to the Leetz Family Match, if we raise $300,000 by Giving Tuesday, we can earn up to $150,000 in matching. This will help ensure no promising research is left on the table in 2020.
When a child is diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis, their young life is turned upside down. This disease changes everything. The child faces a body fighting itself. Juvenile Myositis can attack any system of the body.
There are currently no FDA-approved treatments. There is no cure...yet. But we can change that.
Like most rare diseases, JM research funding comes almost entirely from grassroots efforts like these fundraising pages.
Why does your gift of hope matter?
All gifts go straight to Cure JM Foundation and will support crucial work, including:
· Making JM research at 24 major institutions around the world possible
· Funding drug discovery and development research, so children will have more and better treatments
· Investing in research to understand the genes that contribute to JM
· Finding and supporting the “best and the brightest” of the next generation of doctors and researchers that will support and treat our children
We are forever grateful to you and your support. It means so much to us.
Whatever level of support you can consider, please know that we will put it to work at the earliest possible moment to find better treatments.
We always say, “A Cure Can’t Wait.”
Neither can these kids.
We’re so grateful to you. Thank you for giving the gift of hope this holiday season.
