Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page!
Thank you for donating and/or walking. March 19th 2018 changed my life forever with “you have MG”. I am someone who believes in taking care of myself and now even more so. Without the medications, my arms and facial muscles are weak, swallowing is difficult and vision in my left eye is poor. Most days I still have some trouble breathing. Myasthenia gravis is caused by an error in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles, causing muscle weakness. Running has to be put behind me for now, but walking is still possible. Please consider joining me on May 5th to walk 3 miles. If that is too much, there is a 1.5 mile loop.
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!
