My story is long, but I'll keep it short n' sweet for the sake of character limits. I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis this past November after months of self-advocation and dozens of misdiagnoses.I tested positive for 3 out of 4 antibodies, so you could say I'm an overachiever. Myasthenia Gravis translates to "grave muscle weakness", for months I felt my body slowly deteriorating. Suddenly, I was collapsing during dance performances; I wasn't able to lift things like my lacrosse stick at practice or my little cousins at the pool. Then I began experiencing things like blurry and double vision, then finally issues swallowing and just smiling (my inability to smile coined my favorite nickname, "crackhead smile"). Saying my life is different is definitely an understatement, but I refuse to go without speaking out about it. This (obviously) will be my first walk, and I am more than excited to participate and raise awareness for my rare disease.
If you donate to my team, all donations will go towards finding a cure for MG and closely related disorders, improving treatment options, and providing information and support to people with MG through research, education, community programs, and advocacy. The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against MG.
