Juvenile Myositis (JM) and Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) is a rare autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks it's own cells and tissues. Approximately 1,000 new cases of it are diagnosed in the US every year. My son is one of those cases. It definitely turned our lives upside down BUT has not taken away our spirits and have just made us stronger. With GOD and support of our loved ones, doctors and CureJM families we are thriving. Our goal for CureJM is to find a cure and improve lives of families affected by the disease. Like most rare diseases, research funding is almost entirely from grassroots efforts like these walk fundraising pages. Every dollar makes a difference.
We’re excited to be walking in the Walk Strong to Cure JM™ D.C. on July 1st . Click this link below to join Run for Ramon or make a gift in honor of our Mighty Monchito team. Your support means so, so much to us and gives us HOPE for a cure for JDM.
Every little bit helps and means so much to all effected by this monster. that MANY do not know about. God bless you all.
