Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page!
I am excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk for another year.
My battle with myasthenia gravis started in 2001 following a vaccination. I experienced double vision, difficulty chewing and walking, muscle weakness and extreme fatigue for years. I fell down more times than I can count. I spent months in a wheelchairs and was forced to resign from my corporate career. I never gave up knowing that better than treatment and a cure is out there.
Myasthenia Gravis is an expensive disease to treat. At times I had to travel to Mexico in order to get affordable prescriptions. The brand name medications in the US cost me over $500 verse $27 in Mexico. The IVIG treatments cost 10k per day to have a nurse come to my home for five days.
Over the years I have had over $500,000 in conventional medical treatment, countless medical visits, several near death experiences, over two months in the hospital until finding CBD oil that has had me in remission since 8/27/14! I know this oil doesn't work with for everyone so the need to raise funds for continued research is critical. Each day is not taken for granted. I will continue to create awareness .
I am delighted to have partnered with MGFA to help raise money via my travel business at www.CruisingForMG.com For every completed trip booked with the code MGFA a donation is made to help fight myasthenia gravis. This is my way to fundraise all year long. I know a cure is out there and all of the funds raised helps to bring us that much closer!
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.
