We are excited to announce that our Cure JM community has rallied to reach our Giving Tuesday goal!

Because of you, we are closer to funding more breakthrough JM research and programs in the new year. We are on our way to reaching a stretch goal of $1 million! Meeting this stretch goal will make even more hopeful research, empowering education, and critical support possible.

Now, we have more good news.

To help us meet this stretch goal, our Co-Founders, Tom and Shari Hume, will be matching gifts with the Founders' Match Challenge.

Take advantage of this matching gift opportunity by donating today. This challenge expires at midnight on December 31.

We are proud to share the progress that you made possible over the last year. 2023 has been a monumental year.

You are the power behind this progress and building momentum.

During this historic year, we celebrate 20 years of progress. For 20 years, we have remained laser-focused on our mission to fund research that improves treatments, informs care, and delivers support for JM patients.

We are proud of the progress our Cure JM families and friends made possible. The research we started this past year will likely lead to better lives for our children.

We pledge to continue the progress you have made possible.
