Letter from Director about Family Support Meeting

June 4, 2015

To all our Families and Friends of the Myocarditis Foundation:

We are asking if you will be coming to our 3rd Family Support Meeting on September 25-27, 2015, which is being held in conjunction with the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) and at which time we will celebrate our 10 year anniversary of the Foundation, that you make your decision soon and let us know.

The Foundation is limited with the number of people we can have attend because of the size of the meeting room that the HFSA has allotted us.

More importantly, because there will be thousands of Cardiologists and Researchers in the town at the same time, hotel reservations are going fast.

My recommendation is that you make your reservations now, even if you may need to back out later. Please do not wait to make them because you will probably not get them at a later date.

The following hotels have rooms available: (Plus others I am sure)

Quality Inn, Inner Harbor (410)637-3600

(2 night stay would be $325.10, which includes tax), and is a 6 block walk to the Gaylord or quick taxi ride

Courtyard by Marriott, in Alexandria, Virginia (703) 329-2323

Deals on Hotwire…or a little more thru general reservations

4 ½ miles from Gaylord (Shuttle supposedly will take you within a 5 mile radius of hotel)

 Crowne Plaza, Old Town, Alexandria Virginia (703) 683-6000

(119.00/night plus taxes) 20 minute cab ride to the Gaylord at a cost of $18.00-$20.00, but cheaper rate on Hotwire found

Airline tickets are on sale thru Friday (first week in June) for as low as $49.00 or more, one way, depending on how far away you are traveling from thru Southwest Airlines.

This will be a great meeting with lots of things to share by experts in the field of Myocarditis. We really would love for you to attend and look forward to celebrating our 10 year anniversary with you!

Warm Regards,

Genevieve Rumore, Director of the Myocarditis Foundation
