Grandparent Support Network Representatives
Laurel and Chuck Krider
Laurel and Chuck are the proud parents of three grown children and devoted grandmother to eight beautiful grandchildren. When their two-year-old grandson was diagnosed with JM, Laurel and Chuck became very involved in caring for him and his younger brother. They both believe strongly in the importance of grandparents supporting their families, supporting each other and supporting Cure JM.
Recently retired, Laurel and Chuck have stepped forward as Cure JM Grandparent Network representatives. Their goal is to support, encourage, and assist other grandparents who want to support each other and/or make a difference for their grandchildren.
“Grandparents have always been an important part of Cure JM,” says Laurel. “Cure JM was founded by parents and grandparents in 2003 and to this day grandparents play a crucial role in supporting their families and supporting Cure JM's mission.”
