Join Us for Walk Strong Across America on July 4th
Today (June 18, 2022) marks the 2 year anniversary of adding the diagnosis of Juvenile Dermatomyositis for Hannah to the Juvenile Arthritis. These 2 years have been a whirlwind of many things. Ups and downs, scary times, and intense doctors appointments. Tests and meds. Med changes, side effects, adjustments, mental health. Although we don't know exactly what the future will hold right now, we are hopeful for a cure! Because of the generous support (no amount to small!) we feel that she has had care and treatment that has helped her get to a place where we are actually in the (long) process of weaning her off of one of her JDM meds! If she can succesuccessfully stop Cellcept, she will be down to 2 immune suppressant meds!
In order to continue the great research and care, and hope for a cure one day, we are again 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. You can walk at your convenience, and send me (Jenn) a picture or two!
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.
