Join host Tami Neumannn as she sits down in conversation with author Kim Poston Miller and Cure JM Co-Founder Shari Hume as they talk about another autoimmune disorder, Juvenile Myositis.

Learn about Juvenile Myositis, it's symptoms, how it is diagnosed and the latest in JM research.

Kimberly Poston Miller is the mother of two sons with very different cases of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Over the past decade, she and her family have navigated a number of diagnoses and conditions related to JA.

In the fall of 2013 Spry published her first book Living With Juvenile Arthritis: A Parent’s Guide to help other families acquire the information it took the Miller’s nearly a dozen years to compile. In addition to medical advice and care provided by family physicians and specialists, the book helps to fill the gaps surrounding the rest of your child’s life, from emotional well being, to family and friends, to challenges at school and everything in between. It was the guide she wished she had at the onset of her family’s journey.

Shari Hume co-founded Cure JM Foundation in 2003; just a year after learning that her son, Parker (then age 4), was battling Juvenile Dermatomyositis. Shari was inspired by her son's courage and resilience in fighting this disease and wanted to help other families affected by JM. Shari is determined to find a cure for JM so that no other children will suffer the debilitating effects of this disease.
