Regional Chapter Family Outreach Chairs and Family Support Network Regional Representatives

Each of Cure JM’s Chapters has a Family Outreach Chair who engages and supports the families in their chapter. Learn more about Cure JM’s Regional chapters. And every chapter has a Facebook group! Join your chapter Facebook group.

For regions who don’t yet have a Cure JM Chapter, the families are served by a regional Family Support Representative.  These trained representatives offer peer support to families in their region.

To connect with other families in your region, find your area below or contact Family Support Network Director Julie Shevlin at .

All Cure JM families are invited to follow Cure JM on Social Media and join the Cure JM message board for additional peer support.
