Join us in supporting Cure JM research - Walking for Team Ferrante!
We wanted to share how we are giving back to an organization that is helping children. You may know that this has been a hard time for us because Bella was diagnosed with juvenile myositis, a rare and debilitating condition.
In juvenile myositis, the body's natural defense system can't tell the difference between its own cells and foreign ones. The body mistakenly attacks its own tissues and organs. The attacking cells trigger inflammation throughout the body, leading to muscle, joint and skin problems, pain, fatigue, and even organ damage.
Right now, there are no FDA-approved treatments and no cure. Current treatments are largely borrowed from childhood cancer treatments and, though lifesaving, these treatments have debilitating side effects including nausea, weight gain, stunted growth, and life-long complications.
We know that Bella deserves better. That’s why we are raising funds for Cure JM’s research program.
Your gift will help give a brighter future to children with JM.
Gifts are tax-deductible and will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Leetz Family Match. Every dollar makes a difference!
