Thank you for your #GivingTuesday Support

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world.

This year, #GivingTuesday falls on December 3. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners
to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world.

#GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

Over 80K in patient financial assistance awarded so far with the majority of funding from small donors.

What is #Give4Myositis?

We need your help. Make an impact on the lives of myositis patients by giving as little as $10. Make it a recurring monthly donation to give all year long. Your donation will be used to fund our crucial myositis patient financial assistance program so patients can stress less about finances and focus more on their health.

Whether it’s sporadic inclusion body myositis, dermatomyositis, immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy, juvenile dermatomyositis, antisynthetase syndrome, or polymyositis, we help myositis patients live their best possible lives despite the challenges and limitations they face. Contributions exceeding our goal will be used to continue building and expanding our patient-centered support, education, and advocacy programs, and will help fund patient-led research initiatives that matter most to myositis patients like The Pain Project.

We have lofty goals and funding is the only thing standing in our way. You can help. We appreciate your support.

Give the Gift of Plasma

An important way to #Give4Myositis

Donate Plasma

Did you know it can take up to 1,000 people donating plasma to create one IVIG therapy for one patient for one year? Plasma donation is essential to create treatments for rare diseases such as Polymyositis, Dermatomyositis, Immune-Mediated Necrotizing Myopathy, Juvenile Myositis, Antisynthese Syndrome, and even for Inclusion Body Myositis in some cases.

This detailed video takes viewers through all of the steps a first-time plasma donor would experience during the process of donating lifesaving plasma.

Donate Plasma. Save lives.

Donate Plasma for medical research

If you are living with myositis, this is a paid opporunity to donate plasma for medical research, like detecting new autoantibodies, and manufacturering diagnostic test kits used in labs to test a patient’s blood for the autoantibodies. This is not whole blood donation.

We have worked together with Plasma Services Group over the past year and their level of dedication to the myositis comunity is inspiring. Learn more about the process, or go ahead and register using the donor form.
