This group of wonderful people took me in when was lost and alone and unsure of where to turn with Myositis. They educated me, cared for me and my family. They inspired and supported me and gave me a place to turn in the dark days. They gave me a place to vent when I was down on myself and depressed. They gave me a place to come when I needed to share my accomplishments and cheered me on. There is no way I could repay them for all they have done to give me the spirit to go on. As far as I’m concerned they’re as much of my family as my wife and children. God Bless them all.
