Submit your loved one's information, In Memory

Please submit by September 5, 2020, to have your loved one remembered in the live streaming event, "A Day of Remembrance" in September 2020.

Share with us the name of a loved one, family member, or friend who lost their life fighting Myositis so they can be featured on the live YouTube streaming video event that will take place  on September 20, 2020.

In previous years, MSU has asked the community to observe a moment of silence; this year in addition to a private moment of silence, we are doing more to ensure we never forget those who fought so hard, in participation with several caring sponsors committed to the myositis community and research.

While honoring their memory and expressing the sadness of these losses–losses that mean a great deal to our community–we can help others realize the urgent need for continued education at all levels, new and effective therapies, rare disease patients to get involved in clinical trials, and better understanding and increased awareness, all keys in helping to fund nonprofit work and myositis research.

Use the form below to submit your loved one’s information by September 5, 2020.
