Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page!
As some of you know, I live with MG or Myasthenia Gravis. I feel so fortunate to have excellent medical care and have my disease in remission. Several years ago, I was baffled and scared by mounting symptoms that didn't seem to make sense and made it hard for me to get through the day. I went through medications and surgery, and gradually began to feel better. I'm beyond grateful to the doctors, researchers, and others whose hard work helped get my life back.
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. Not everyone is as lucky as I am. Many still live with intractable symptoms that current treatments can't seem to touch. I walk both to support them, and to thank the many people who helped me.
Please register to walk with me OR make a pledge to help me reach my goal!
Together We Can Make A Difference!
