My father was diagnosed with IBM about 19 years ago, and he passed away from complications 2 years ago. During the last 10 years of his life The Myositis Association was the only group that was able to give him information about his disease. He was always so thankful for the information he received in their newsletters and online web site. He also found comfort in knowing he was not alone in the world suffering from this rare disease. My siblings and I went to The Myositis Association Conference the year my father died and we met so many wonderful people who understood what we had been through as a family. I will continue to contribute to this great organization and volunteer with them as they try help all of those who suffer from myositis diseases. Their annual conference is a wonderful gathering for those who are afflicted with these diseases, and their caregivers.
