Grandparents Council in Growth Mode
Finally, I'd like to introduce you to Randy Putt, volunteer chair of the Cure JM Grandparent's Council and newest member of the Cure JM board of directors. Randy is a retired chemist and pharmaceutical executive whose background will be invaluable to the board. His granddaughter, Brynn, went through a long 8-year journey with active JM. Happily, Brynn is now in remission and has our hopes and prayers that it will be a permanent remission.

I'm thrilled that Randy will be leading our grandparent engagement and fundraising programs. We need grandparents on the Cure JM team more than ever before, and if there is a way you might like to help, please touch base with Randy at

As always, I'm deeply appreciative of all you do to advance the mission of Cure JM to find better treatments and a cure for Juvenile Myositis.
