Established in 2012, the Cure JM Champion Award is given to a person or family who has made a significant difference for Cure JM and the children battling Juvenile Myositis. Champion Award winners have been instrumental in helping us advance research, improving the lives of those who battle this disease today and paving the road for a cure in the future.

The 2018 Cure JM Champion award was presented to Merrianne Van Ness in appreciation of her exceptional support in advancing Juvenile Myositis research.

Merrianne is the grandmother of a child with JM and for many years has been an exceptional supporter of Cure JM Foundation. In 2017, Merrianne was recognized as a founding member of the Cure JM Foundation Circle of Trustees for her exceptional generosity.

The 2018 Cure JM Champion award honors Merrianne for her exceptional support in advancing Juvenile Myositis research.
