Supporting Myocarditis Awareness and Research Efforts

Did you know that:

  • Myocarditis is a disease that so often affects otherwise healthy children and young adults.
  • Myocarditis strikes without warning and is the 3rd leading cause of sudden death in that age group.
  • The symptoms of Myocarditis are the same as many viral childhood illnesses and most often is misdiagnosed as those illnesses.
  • We are working on educating both the medical and public communities about this disease so that they look further, think outside the box, and possibly save a life.
  • Early diagnosis is key to improved outcomes from this disease.

Please go to our website www.myocarditisfoundation.org and read our Real Life Stories. There are many more success stories than victim stories as we move forward with our awareness and education about the disease.

Your donations help to educate and will raise funding for research to help find the reason why it attacks some but not others…the most common virus that causes myocarditis is the Coxsackie virus…this virus affects just about everyone at one point in their lives…help us stop myocarditis from stopping your child from living life to the fullest.

All you need to do is start your shopping at smile.amazon.com. The donation will be made at no extra cost to you.  Happy shopping from the comfort of your home knowing you are also helping out the Myocarditis Foundation! Thank you for shopping with us in mind.
