Get the Support you deserve
Patients, Caregivers, and Family Members
We offer the best support to myositis patients, caregivers, and family members. Whether it’s our on-site community, our Facebook support groups, or our live online video support sessions, we are always here for you because we are patients and caregivers too.
We offer support options that make sense for those living with a muscle disease which impedes mobility. Find the support options best for you!
We announced earlier this year our intentions to create an app for the myositis community. Phase one of our goal has been realized!
It is with great excitement to announce the release of the”NuMe” App for myositis, a pilot study App in partnership with Portable Genomics. Currently available for iPhone users, the App is free and enables myositis patients and caregivers to better collect, manage and share important health data with treatment teams, researchers and the pharmaceutical industry.
The data you track and collect, for your own use, is secured on your smartphone and personal cloud. If you consent to sharing data for research purposes your personal information is scrubbed to protect your privacy; you have the ability to opt in or out of sharing at any time.
Read more about and download the App, and see more about our exciting partnership with Portable Genomics.
Education is key to Myositis Awareness
We have hosted several myositis experts to lead live, online video sessions throughout 2018. All sessions were held online with live participation. These sessions were recorded and we hope you will take advantage of the educational opportunities these provide for you and your family members.
We continue to host education, activity, and support sessions live and online via video.

Myositis Support and Understanding
Empowering the Myositis Community
MSU is instrumental in helping to improve the lives of patients fighting this rare, complicated immune-mediated muscle, skin, and often multi-organ disease by being the very first patient-centered organization to offer live, online, video patient support and education sessions that simply make sense for those living with a muscle disease that involves limited mobility and with patients spread across the world.
MSU also provides a “Simply Put” education series, offers clinical trial matching, advocacy, several online support options, awareness building programs, and need-based financial assistance for patients.
