Join Us for Walk Strong Across America on July 4th
MaKynlee was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis on November 6th, 2019. Months prior to this diagnosis Makynlee had developed skin rashes on all her joints, as well as her face, complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath. After many other things had been ruled out, MaKynlee began to display muscle weakness. She was admitted Nov 6th at Vanderbilt Childrens hospital to start aggressive treatment.... one being a high dose of steroids. Steroids are so harsh and cause so many side effects. Weight gain being the hardest one for her. That is where CureJM comes into play, as they are working towards new medications to treat children like MaKynlee without some of these horrible side effects.
This is why we are participating in Walk Strong Across America.
We invite you to show your support by making a gift and walking with us on or before July 4th - from the comfort of your home, in your yard, or around your neighborhood.
Cure JM families, friends and supporters are coming together to raise $750,000 for Juvenile Myositis research. Reaching this important milestone will help ensure no promising research is left on the table.
Gifts will be matched by the Leetz Family Match. Every dollar makes a difference and gifts will be put straight to work to advance research for better treatments, better care, and, ultimately, a cure.
We are so grateful for your support.
