National Leadership Council
The Cure JM National Leadership Council is the organization that leads the charge to raise funds and advance Cure JM’s mission in communities across the country and beyond.
The Cure JM Advocates Council is a forum for connection between young adult patients aged 18-30 to participate in the advancement of Cure JM’s mission with the patient’s best interest in mind.
Cure JM treasures the special role that grandparents play within their families and within our community. The Cure JM Grandparent Council is a platform for grandparents of patients to connect, share ideas, and support their families.
Cure JM was founded in 2003 by a small group of volunteers—parents and grandparents—who wanted to change the world for children with a rare disease few had ever heard of—juvenile myositis, or JM.
The founders came together with the same determination to find better treatments and a cure for juvenile myositis that drives Cure JM today. Our accomplishments today are still driven by engagement from our families.
