Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page! As many of you know, my spouse Tam Lancaster was diagnosed with MG in December of 2017, and complications have led to 3 hospitalizations since then. In early March we had a 16 day stay predominantly in the ICU where she was forced to be placed on a ventilator and feeding tube. We were discharged and only home for 6 days before another hospitalization this time for 13 days with 2 trips to the ICU and feeding tube again.
Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular autoimmune disease which affects all voluntary muscles including those used to breathe, see, and swallow.This disease is terrifying, and so little is known about what causes it or how to treat it. There is currently no cure, but there is hope! We need your help funding research for this disease to help find a cure!
I am excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk. 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.
Please register to walk with me OR make a pledge to help me reach my goal!
Together We Can Make A Difference!
