CURE JM FOUNDATION
October 17, 2012

This past weekend, I attended my first Cure JM Conference. I went there, wanting to learn as much as I could about JDM so I could help find a cure for my 6 year old grandson Kinser who was diagnosed in August of 2010. I wanted medical information, anything that I use to help him and the other children with this disease. To be honest, most of the medical information was so far over my head that I had a hard time grasping the information presented. Then, I realized the real reason I was there. It was for support, the kind you get when you realize that there is a "community/family" out there for you. To help you cope. To give you strength. To give you courage to fight against something that has no boundries or feelings like you do. The entire time I spent time with the Cure JM Foundation family, I felt courage coming from each and everyone of those in attendence. This could only have been accomplished if the Foundation existed, without them, we would be standing alone. That is something no family should ever feel when dealing with an Orphan Disease. The Cure JM Foundation deserves to be recognized for this award because they exist for the families to have hope.
