Cure JM Foundation Funded Studies

Cure JM Foundation was founded with the primary goal of finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis. To that end, most of the donations we raise go into the funding of research exploring the genesis of JM, more effective treatments for JM and potential cures for JM. Among some of our more notable accomplishments has been the funding of the Cure JM Program of Excellence in JM Research at Children’s Memorial Research Center in Chicago, as well as grants extended to the JM research and treatment center at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. We would like to thank all those who helped make this possible and who are continuing to raise awareness and funds for further JM research.
