First I gotta say WOO HOOO!! I have DM (dermatomyositis) and I know that there are only 20,000 adult cases of this in the US. It’s a rare disease and in being so, it goes unnoticed where we want it to be noticed-Mainstream. If a Hollywood-ite holds up a bracelet that says Cure JM the whole world will be asking, what is JM? And the awareness train leaves the tracks. Thank you Johnny Depp. Dermatomyositis is an awful disease, but JM for kids is even worse. I SO appreciate you taking the time to hold that up for the 5,000 kids that suffer with this disease in this country.
,000 cased of DM (dermatomyositis) in adults. For children that number is much smaller, only 5,000 children in the US have JM (juvenile dermatomyositis).
Thanks again for showing your heart to the world. It might make a big difference to these kids.
