I want to say a huge THANK YOU for the help through the MSU Myositis Financial Assistance program. This disease is horrible and it is a daily struggle to get through because of the pain. We know that stress triggers flares and I have been in a terrible flare due to the stress of my house possible going into foreclosure, and the medical bills piling up. Due to the illness, my hours were cut at work and I was struggling. I am doing my best to work while I still can. No bank would help, so every day I worried what am I going to do? Then through the Facebook myositis support group I came across the financial assistance program info, applied, and was approved! What a huge relief! I am already coming out of this nasty flare because now I will not lose my home! You have no idea how much this means to me to have a program like this to help us while struggling with the disease. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! — by a Financial Assistance Recipient
