Our group includes the southern areas of NC and the northern portion of SC.

We meet every other month to provide support to myositis patients and their caregivers.  Through this support group, those with dermatomyositis (DM), polymyositis (PM), inclusion-body myositis (IBM) or juvenile myositis (JM) will receive valuable information on the latest treatments, share common concerns among those with similar experiences, learn coping skills, provide emotional support, and gain information on how to be an effective caregiver.  We will do this through members sharing what’s happening in their lives and through various speakers.  We will also provide refreshments to all attendees, introduce new attendees, share concerns and provide reassurance that you are not alone.

Please join TMA and the Carolinas KIT Support Group!  You’ll be glad you did!
