The Cure JM Foundation is a non-profit, voluntary organization managed by families and friends of patients with juvenile mysositis (JM), a rare autoimmune disease. Juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) and juvenile polymyositis (JPM) are the most common forms of JM. Primary symptoms of JDM include weak muscles and skin rash, while muscle weakness without a rash is the primary symptom of JPM. Created specifically to find a cure for this disease, the Cure JM Foundation is working to raise awareness of JM while also providing support and information to families suffering from JM.
