This year has been especially scary for children with Juvenile Myositis.
COVID-19 increased the vulnerability of children who receive treatments that suppress their immune systems.
The COVID-19 crisis has shown that now more than ever, we need to move Juvenile Myositis research forward.
Cure JM families, friends, and supporters are coming together to raise $650,000 for Juvenile Myositis research.
Reaching this important milestone will help ensure no promising research is left on the table in 2021.
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. And 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.
