Myositis Awareness Month, previous years
A collection of our previous year Myositis Awareness Month campaigns
Myositis Awareness Month 2016 Results are in!
2016 MSU Theme: #MyositisLIFE
Thanks to YOU, we reached over 187,000 people through our #MyositisLIFE campaign! That is one impressive number, so give yourself a pat on the back!
Awareness through Education
There is always time for awareness through education. Embrace each opportunity to educate others by providing them with our information cards and brochures. You can order these in our online store to have on hand, or order your very own custom MSU information cards that include your name and information.
Other ways you can help educate include sharing resources from our website, interacting with and sharing our social networking sites, writing your own personal story to be featured on our website’s blog, and in so many other creative ways.
Awareness and Education will help others to better understand our complicated, rare disease. So, when you see an opportunity to educate, we hope you will jump in and take it!
Awareness doesn't end with May!

Still time to make a donation!
Help us raise funds!
As a nonprofit, MSU has a responsibility to fundraise in order for us to continue moving towards our mission and goals. Will you help by making a donation of any amount?
Every dollar brings us closer to building necessary programs and services, and allowing us to get involved in ways we otherwise could not. We thank you for your generosity! www.gofundme.com/myositis

#MyositisLIFE can be . . .
#MyositisLIFE can be many things. It can be challenging, beautiful, invisible, full of meaning, painful, and so much more. Share these educational images to help your family members and friends learn a little bit more about Myositis. We will be adding more throughout Awareness Month!
FROM 2015 AWARENESS DAY
Myositis Awareness Video 2015
This is a video creation based on a sign campaign we did for Myositis Awareness Day 2015.
In order to keep the video under 20 minutes, you may not be able to read each individual sign. However, we have uploaded all images to our Flickr account. You can view them by visiting www.Flickr.com/photos/myositis
Does this video make you want to become more involved? We would love that! We have volunteer opportunities, and you can also purchase awareness products, or make a donation, to help MSU promote education and patient financial assistance. Or, host an event in your town or city!
2015 Thunderclap Results: We did it!
Goal was to surpass 2014’s 52K social reach and we did!
Our Thunderclap message was a huge success reaching 78,722 people across social networks, spreading an awareness message. We surpassed our 2014 goal by 27,483 new social messages.
Thunderclap is the first crowd-speaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. The way it works is by you signing up and then once a goal is met, Thunderclap shares our message to everyone in your social network!
Stay tuned for the 2016 Myositis Awareness Month Thunderclap message!
