Alexandra Castro

South Florida | Team Snowflake Warriors

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

My name is Alexandra Castro and I have Myasthenia Gravis. Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune disease in which antibodies mistakenly attack and destroy neuromuscular connections, causing weakness in muscles that control basic movements that include walking, swallowing, blinking, breathing, and smiling. Many patients are unable to enjoy their daily lives, attend school, or work. MG can affect every one in different ways. I was diagnosed at the age of 24 (12 yrs ago). Since then my life has changed. I struggle everyday to live a normal life and do the normal things that people take for granted. Such as taking in a full breath, eating, drinking, having a conversation, getting dressed, running after my 5 yrs old etc. I am not alone. Tens of thousands of Americans are affected yet so few have ever heard of it. Please join myself, my family and friends as we walk for a world with out MG!

The walk will take place:

Sunday, March 11, 2018
Tradewinds Park, Coconut Creek, FL
Check-In begins at 9:00 AM; Walk Ceremony begins at 10:00 AM

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!
