Addie – My Prayer Child

Addie (of Addie’s Angels) is a seven year old child with a beautiful smile and a lot of courage.  Addie is fighting JDM (juvenile dermatomyositis) and is a little angel with a lot of heart.  I have mentioned her in Gimme-Jimmy as one of my prayer children for whom I wrote the book, and if you get a chance please visit her facebook page at Addie’s Angels – http://www.facebook.com/AddiesAngels – and “like” it, so that she can add to her collection of beans.  She gets a new bean in her jar for every new angel that joins!  You could also offer a prayer that a cure will be found for this debilitating disease…so that Addie can live the full and happy life that she deserves!

Here is some information on this disease:

Juvenile Dermatomyositis and Juvenile Polymyositis are the most common forms of JM (Juvenile Myositis)- a rare autoimmune disease that affects approximately 17,000 children and adult. JM causes a variety of debilitating symptoms including: Muscle weakness and pain, Severe fatigue, Rashes, Swallowing and digestive difficulties, Lung and heart problems, Vasculitic ulcers,Calcinosis. Some children may experience a remission, while others will battle JM their entire life, and complications from this disease can prove fatal. Medication can help to alleviate the symptoms of Juvenile Myositis, but there is no known cure.
