Representatives of various international myositis groups and – organizations from, Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States of America have jointly decided to establish the World Myositis Day.
This special day will be celebrated every year on September 21 from now on. On the WMD, special attention should be paid to the disease of myositis. Myositis – which can affect adults and children – is a progressive inflammatory muscle disease leading to weakness, muscle loss, fatigue, and sometimes to skin, heart and lung involvement. Myositis is a pooling of different disease and/or symptoms. The public should be made aware of myositis and the disease should be brought into the focus of research and medicine. Share this info and join us in celebrating World Myositis Day every September 21!
