The South East Texas/ Houston Area KIT group is proof that “together we can” and “together we will” are more than just slogans in helping people deal with myositis. We are an active group of dynamic people, including adults and juvenile patients who, even if not so physically active at times, make the world better by just being in it and inspiring others. Our meetings often feature guest speakers such as physicians, dieticians, exercise specialists, psychologists, and music therapists, and always include opportunities for caring and sharing. We love to eat, and are lucky to have some great cooks amongst our members. We bring a dish to share at every quarterly meeting and this has led to much recipe sharing. We are especially proud to have produced an exercise video for people of all physical abilities, available through TMA. We also host an annual golf tournament, one of TMA’s most successful fundraisers.
