Cure Megan -- Ten Years and Still Counting

Ten years ago, doctors diagnosed our daughter Megan -- "Thing 1/Li'l Diva" to our friends in the blogosphere -- with juvenile myositis (JM), a potentially devastating autoimmune disease.

While she has been fortunate in that regular treatments have kept it in check for much of this past decade, not all kids are so lucky. We know of at least five who have died -- Mikey Gavin, Cole Flack, Brandi Valentine, Casey Pannocchia and Mason Smedley -- and many more who struggle greatly day to day with the ravages of this illness.

To help prevent future tragedy, our entire family is participating in the Baltimore Running Festival on October 13, 2012, to raise funds for Cure JM Foundation, an all-volunteer group fighting for research into a cure for this often painfully and sometimes fatal disease.

Kevin will be running the 5k. Megan and Calvin will be doing the kids' 1-mile fun run, and Rhonda - sidelined this year after knee surgury -- will be manning the watering station.

Please help Megan and the many children like her by sponsoring our efforts.

The McKeever (aka Uncool) Family
Kevin, Rhonda, Megan, Cal and Murphy
