Join me in supporting the MGFA Walk!
I am excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk because the mission is important and personal to me and my family.
I was diagnosed with MG in 2018 after over a 2 year battle with symptoms. My symptoms can be mild and manageable on my good days and bed ridden on my bad. MG affects my voluntary muscles which include my vision, eyelids, speech, swallowing, breathing, eating, arms, legs, and other skeletal muscles. Most of all it can take me away from doing what’s most important to me, being a mom to my kids and a wife to my husband. Before MG, I loved to exercise, dance, chase my kids around, and have a day full of activities.
Now, to manage all of my symptoms it takes daily medications and some around the clock, careful and strategic planning of my day, and IV infusions of the only FDA approved treatment for MG every 14 days.
One day, with the help of your participation, fundraising, and donations, I pray there will be a cure for this rare disease because one day I want to be and feel normal again.
The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against myasthenia gravis.
MGFA is committed to finding a cure for myasthenia gravis and closely related disorders, improving treatment options, and providing information and support to people with myasthenia gravis through research, education, community programs, and advocacy.
