How did we come to welcome cryptocurrency?

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

Damon's Story:

Man and son
Mason and Damon early on in Mason’s treatment.

Mason and Damon during Mason’s brave battle against JM.

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.

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.
