Juvenile Myositis, Every vote helps.

All you have to do to help my man Kevin out is vote!

Hey again, everyone:

Cure JM has gone from 30th to 13th place since voting on the Pepsi Refresh project started July 1, so all of your votes at are making a difference. Please vote EVERY DAY! $250,000 is half of Cure JM's fundraising goal for the entire year (see note below).

Thanks for all your help.

Always Home and Uncool:


Thanks to all of you for voting everyday for the Cure JM Foundation to win a $250,000 research grant from the Pepsi Refresh project. WE ARE IN 13TH PLACE!!!! We need to be in 1st or 2nd to win. WE CAN DO THIS!

Here's the link to vote:

Please keep voting and forwarding the link to EVERYONE you know. Sports teams, work groups, classmates, neighbors, etc. Also, if you and/or your kids are on Facebook, please forward the information to your Facebook friends. An easy way to do this is to click on "SHARE" after you vote. It provides you with an easy link to share with your Facebook friends.

Remember, EACH person in your family age 13 or older can vote. I'm at a family reunion, and everyone of my relatives lines up at my computer to vote.

If we win this grant, not only will we keep our research centers going; but also, Cure JM and Juvenile Myositis and Juvenile Dermatomyositis could become household names. So, the next time you tell someone that you or your child has Juvenile Dermatomyositis, he or she might actually know what it is!!!!!!

I'm working on getting some national media exposure. If you have any contacts, please email me at
