Cure JM Regional Chapters

Get connected with other JM families and medical providers in your area.

Local Cure JM chapters help connect you to a community of support.

Looking to meet other people who understand what daily life with juvenile myositis is really like? Looking for support, encouragement, or just a bit of fun?

Cure JM Chapters bring together people with JM, friends, loved ones, and caregivers for fun, social and informative educational events, and activities focused on mutual support and positive coping strategies for living well.

Through your local chapter, you can gain the knowledge and resilience to be an empowered patient and family.

“What a great experience meeting other families has been for us! When dealing with such a rare disease it’s comforting to meet others and know you have people who are going through the same thing with their child.”
Erin C., Mora's Mom
