Walk Strong to Cure JM

Brogan Strong

We're Walking for a Brighter Future!

Brogan was diagnosed with JDM in October of 2021, at the age of 10, after he quickly and severely lost muscle strength and could no longer perform his daily routines. He loves sports, especially baseball, and we noticed a slow decline in some of his activities throughout the previous summer. By September he had gone from our sports fanatic active kid to not being able to get out of bed, he couldn’t do stairs (we would have to carry him up and down), he was barely able to walk, and suffered from joint contractures and severe pain.  Upon diagnosis, he stared an aggressive treatment plan.  He is still on several medications (with harsh side effects) along with monthly IVIG infusions. He attends physical therapy weekly to help him continue to regain his strength and his skin involvement has improved. Each day is full of ups and downs and he has good days and bad but he is determined to one day be back on that baseball field again. We are so thankful for the CureJM Foundation, the research they are doing and the hope that someday their work will lead to a cure for this disease.

Every dollar makes a difference to improve treatments, care, and support for juvenile myositis.  


Juvenile myositis is a life-threatening disease which causes children to miss out on the best part of being a kid.


There are currently no approved treatments.  Current treatments save lives, but have devastating side-effects.  Together we can change that.
