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

Until a few months ago I had never heard of myasthenia gravis (MG). That's because it's a very rare, incurable autoimmune disease that affects the voluntary muscles. It's treatable, but not curable. In March I learned that I suffer from this disease that affects about 20 out of 100,000 people, although it's believed that because it's rare it is an under-diagnosed disease. Most doctors have never encountered it.

Because it's a rare disease drug companies and medical researchers don't have very many studies underway. There's also not a lot of money available to fund research. That's why I'm working to help raise funds for research into the causes and possible cures and treatments for myasthenia gravis.

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!
