IMG_3394The Myositis Association Australia welcomes your support by way of donations or fundraising activities.

Our objective is to raise funds to support Australian-based research projects. Currently, there is a study underway examining the weakness in muscle compared with weakness in nerves. A further grant has been awarded for 2015/16 for research into developing a myositis specific blood test and a proposed study focussed on the benefits of exercise particularly for IBM patients, is recruiting prior to grant funds being made available.

We have been very fortunate to receive some generous donations both privately and from organisations. Successful fundraising activities have included an auction/event at the Sydney Fish Markets, film night, golf days, bowls days, garden party, high tea, raffles, ribbon sales. Collaborative events with community groups have been very successful.

Your continued support to replenish our research funds is very welcome.
