Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page!

As many of you know, my husband Charlie was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2010 (first he had double vision, then started slurring his speech - I thought he was secretly drinking, and finally could barely swallow his food). After a terrifying year in which he was improperly treated and had to be hospitalized, thanks to information and referrals from the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, he is finally stabilized and doing well. He's now on an immunosuppressant drug and, except for occasional unsteadiness and fatigue, life is pretty much back to normal.

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a rare, incurable autoimmune disease in which antibodies mistakenly attack and destroy neuromuscular connections, causing weakness in muscles that control some of our most basic movements: walking, talking, swallowing, blinking, breathing - even smiling (now Charlie has a good excuse for not smiling for the camera!). MG affects approximately 20 out of 100,000 people. There are treatments that are partially effective but there is no cure.

The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation is the only national volunteer health agency dedicated solely to the fight against Myasthenia Gravis and to serving patients with MG.

Please register to walk with me AND/OR make a pledge to help me reach my goal!

Together We Can Make A Difference!
