Donate Cryptocurrency and Help JM Kids Like Daisy

Daisy is 11 years old and was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis at age 3.

Cure JM Foundation’s mission is to find a cure and better treatments for Juvenile Myositis (JM) and to improve the lives of families affected by JM. JM is a childhood autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack itself, including the heart, lungs, muscles, skin, and joints.

Cure JM Foundation is the only organization solely dedicated to funding research and helping families affected by JM.

Read Damon and Mason’s story below to learn Cure JM’s cryptocurrency story.

We are pleased to accept the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK).

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause. If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out thegivingblock.com/faq.

How did we come to welcome cryptocurrency?

We were introduced to cryptocurrency by Damon, a longtime cryptocurrency investor.

Mason and Damon Right after being diagnosed with JM

Mason and Damon early on in Mason’s treatment.

Here’s his story:

“My son Mason was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis (JM) at just 17 months old. His battle went up and down through the years but in 2008 Mason's strength took a steep decline where he was no longer able to move his arms or legs.

Mason would go on to spend the next four years in-and-out of the hospital. On June 19, 2012, Mason lost his battle against the disease. Mason will always be remembered for his smile, his witty character and his ability to share love with everyone he encountered.

We believe in Cure JM’s mission and we believe in fundraising for Cure JM. We raise funds so that no other child ever has to suffer like Mason did.

This year, we are excited about the Giving Tuesday Holiday Challenge because it is bringing families across the country together for a single cause.

Since JM is an orphan disease it doesn't get a lot of attention. With the small number of children affected, the burden of cost for research falls to the parents and friends who get behind the search for a cure.

We are a small group of parents and friends, but we have a big goal: TO CURE JM.

Our family is raising funds this year in memory of Mason. We miss him every single day.”
- Mason’s Dad, Damon

We honor Mason and his shining spirit of strength and resilience. We hope that you’ll support Cure JM's mission and help us in the search for better treatments and a cure.
