Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" page!
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with MG back in 2013. I am thankful and grateful that I have been able to maintain a somewhat normal life while battling the disease. I am thankful and grateful that, even though I was misdiagnosed at one hospital, my wife and my dear friends guided me to the realization that I needed to go to the Cleveland Clinic for help.
This year I have been asked to be the face of the Ohio Walk in Cleveland. What I hope to offer to everyone is hope. Hope that a person’s MG can be treated and their life can be returned to something close to normal. Hope that a loved one, fighting the disease, can get the help that they need. Hope that awareness is raised to levels where people are not misdiagnosed and can start getting the help they need immediately. Hope that the Doctors and Researchers can receive additional funding as they explore the causes and treatments of MG. Hope that support groups can begin to garner enough attention that those of us that have MG and those living with that person, can find groups to participate in locally. And finally, hope that the Doctors and Researchers will find a way to treat, cure, and eradicate MG.
So please, if you can, join us in the walk here in Cleveland. Help fund the search for treatments and ultimately a cure.
Please register to walk with me OR make a pledge to help me and the Cleveland Clinic team EXCEED our goal..
