[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Welcome to May, where MSU will help you see the forest as well as the trees!

Myositis Awareness Month starts today and we are excited to start sharing with you!

We have a lot planned for May, informative educational sessions by both, medical professionals and people living with myositis, video support sessions, contests and giveaways, a series of informative posts to increase the community’s awareness of myositis, and more!

All of these are ways to support, encourage, and empower the myositis community to live our best #MyositisLIFE!

We will also have ways for you to get involved! Writing for our #MyositisLIFE website about patient and family member or caregiver experiences, volunteering, and even helping us fundraise! You are so important to us and the make-up of the MSU forest!

Don’t forget to change your Facebook profile picture “frame” to an MSU awareness month frame! You can simply click on your profile picture, click edit, click add frame, and then search for myositis. the two frames we have created this year have a circle (one is blue and the other is green) with either the “MSU is a forest” emblem at the bottom (the one you see in my profile photo) or the “MSU rainbow.”
