We are not a nonprofit that takes your money and then does nothing to keep in touch or to help you directly. We have a heart.
We care about our members, and of course, we worry when someone is not doing well. When we are made aware that a Myositis patient is not feeling well, or is in the hospital, we will send out a get well card to help inspire them to keep fighting! It may seem like a small gesture, but we have found it means a lot to our members.
We know that there are patients out there who have less than optimal support and we want them to realize they are not alone. This is a small way of letting them know.
If you know someone who needs a card, please contact us with the name, mailing address (whether it is a home address or hospital), and any other details that would help us tailor the card to them.
We have found this seemingly small gesture truly brings joy to the patient.
