The Myocarditis Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Point Pleasant, NJ, that is dedicated to increasing awareness and hastening progress in understanding this rare disease. Myocarditis is a disease that is marked by inflammation and scarring of the heart muscle. It is poorly understood and often underdiagnosed. It can progress rapidly to heart failure, and death or heart transplantation. Several thousand patients per year are diagnosed in the United States. The disease usually attacks otherwise healthy people. Approximately 5-20% of all cases of sudden death in young adults are due to myocarditis. To help guarantee that new and innovative research avenues are thoroughly funded and explored, the Myocarditis Foundation raises money for research and physician and patient education.
