Honoring Myositis Care Partners in December
MSU stands as a beacon of hope for patients and care partners who deal daily with this disease’s financial and emotional burdens. Don’t underestimate the power of small gifts. Imagine the profound impact we could make together if we all donated just $5 or $10!
Give from the Heart!

Living with myositis is hard enough. We are here to help with our Myositis Patient Financial Assistance Program. We cover certain emergency household expenses, medical bills, and mobility and assistive devices. The program is available to U.S. residents. See full details available in our help guide.
At MSU, we are patients and caregivers, too. We started with support, and with our support programs, you will find a family. Join us for myositis patient and caregiver groups, Zoom support, and rooms on Clubhouse. You are NOT alone in this journey.
We believe in the patient-centered research approach – putting the patient at the center of any collaboration with industry, academia, and government agencies to improve the quality of life of ALL affected by myositis. Learn more about the research we are involved in, the impact it can have, and how you can get involved.
Watch recordings of our expert-led myositis educational videos to learn more about the various types of myositis and other myositis-related topics and patient opportunities. New videos just added!
We have put together a list of trusted resources for COVID-19. Be sure to stay tuned to your local and state public health office for details in your area.
