Special Holiday Myositis Patient Support session

We know the holidays are difficult when you are living with myositis. To ensure you get the support you deserve from those who understand best, we have added a special nonreligious Christmas Day video support session, in addition to our other support options you can utilize.

Join us and share your challenges, hopes, fears, circumstances, ask questions and talk to others going through the same or similar situations, including the emotional aspects of myositis life.

All patients diagnosed with myositis are welcome to attend.

Myositis refers to the group of rare muscle and systemic autoimmune diseases, the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM).

This session is for patients only.

Topic: Myositis Patient Video Support Session
Time: Dec. 25, 2019, 3:00 PM Eastern Time (U.S. and Canada)
(2 PM Central, 1 PM Mountain, 12 PM Pacific)

Video support with text chat

The technology we use for video sessions, Zoom, also includes a text chat option available to you once you join the session.

If you are not comfortable talking and you want to ask a question or share an experience, you can type it in the chat area where all participants can read and reply. We also use the chat area to share important links and resources, guidelines for the session, and other helpful information.

You can find the button to open the chat area (see picture below) in the Zoom toolbar located at the bottom of the application.

About our Support Programs

We are a patient-led, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded by myositis patients for myositis patients and caregivers. Our volunteer Board of Directors consists solely of myositis patients and caregivers. Our patient and caregiver volunteers, including our board members, manage all day-to-day operations. You see, we are myositis patients and caregivers or care partners just like you.

Our support programs are always our top priority. Discovering new and innovative ways to expand our support program using technology is an ongoing process. Providing convenient support options is one way we can reach more of those affected by myositis.

We will continue to ensure you have reliable, caring, empowering and educational support, and various options from which to choose.See Support Options »
