Elizabeth was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis just before her 5th birthday. Her journey has been a difficult one made easier through the love and prayers of our friends and family. Today she is on the path to medical remission with great hopes to remain in remission.
Elizabeth hopes one day children no longer experience the difficult journey towards remission. She believes there is a cure and we just need to find it!
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.
