The Myocarditis Support Community is Now Online

The Myocarditis Foundation has partnered with Inspire, the leading social network for healthcare support, to offer a free online community to allow Myocarditis patients and caregivers to support and connect with each other.

Inspire  was founded in 2005 and now serves over 1.2 million participants in over 200 communities. The  communities feature rare diseases, cancer, neurological diseases and chronic diseases. It features over 3,000 defined medical conditions.
