A close friend of ours, Morgan, was recently diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease called Juvenile Myositis. There are very few kids diagnosed with Myositis each year; therefore, pharmaceutical companies do not put a lot of R&D into JM. It’s very unfortunate, but that hasn’t stopped Morgan and her family from dedicating themselves to raising awareness and money for CureJM.
Take a minute to learn more about Morgan and how JM has changed her life: http://www2.tbo.com/video/2010/nov/23/little-girls-mission-01128/video-news/
Morgan was already successful in winning the Pepsi Refresh Grant this August for $250,000 that went to CureJM. Morgan’s Mom, Amy, and the rest of the Wesley Chapel Tri Team have been training to run a full marathon to also raise money for a cure. Click here for more info and to donate.
