MSU has given $250k in Myositis Patient Financial Assistance!

In just 5 years, we have given a quarter of a million dollars ($250,000) in Myositis patient financial assistance!

Financial Assistance programs are rare, even in the rare disease space. We understand living with a rare disease like Myositis is expensive and the need for financial assistance is real. Since 2017, we have helped hundreds of people with Myositis in these categories: mobility/assistive equipment, medical bills – not a copay assistance program – and emergency household expenses.

And this year we increased the maximum award from $1,500 to $2,000. It’s only through your generosity as fellow patients, donors, sponsors, supporters, and MSU volunteers that this was even a possibility. And now, in 2022 alone, we will provide $100,000 in assistance!
