Parrish’s Story

We would like to introduce a one-of-a-kind, competitive, and determined young man, named Parrish. His story of resiliency and hope is one that will resonate with many of us in the Cure JM family. Parrish faced many challenges in his journey with JM, but found hope and support in his family and the Cure JM community. We are pleased to now share his experience to help others facing the same struggles during Myositis Awareness Month.

In this article, we hope to provide you with a few effective strategies and insights to help working parents navigate this delicate balance.
