What is the Myositis Empower Walk?

IN LOVING MEMORY, ROBERT “BOB” LANDMAN

The Landman Family created the Myositis Empower Walk in 2019 in loving memory of Robert “Bob” Landman who passed away due to a too-late diagnosis of dermatomyositis. In 2020, the Empower Walk introduced the virtual experience, with live participation. There are no fees to attend. However, we encourage you to use this opportunity to invite your friends and family to get involved and help us fundraise. All money raised goes to Myositis Support and Understanding (MSU) and is used to further the mission, to improve the lives of and empower those fighting myositis. Learn more about Bob’s story by reading Our Dad was More Than His Dermatomyositis and watching LIVE with the Landman’s.

2020 INTIMATE DISCUSSION

LIVE with the Landman’s

Lauren and Jenna Landman, creators of the Myositis Empower Walk, joined us for an intimate discussion about their dad’s journey, and his subsequent death shortly after being diagnosed with the rare disease dermatomyositis.
