Mary F.'s Fundraiser:

Birthday Wish: Find a Cure for MG

Autumn is around the corner, that means my birthday is coming up. So, please help me in raising money to find a cure for Myasthenia Gravis, aka MG. That is my birthday wish!

According to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America website, the disease is described as a "chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups."

Myasthenia Gravis is Latin for "Grave Muscular Weakness".
Muscle groups will suddenly collapse without warning and, sometimes, can be misdiagnosed as a stroke. Currently, there is no cure. My hope is that this disease will have the funds to thoroughly research this disease and so they will discover a cure.

Even though it's not thought to be genetic, both my father and my younger brother have recently been diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis (MG) in the past year. Age does not seem to be a factor since my dad is in his 80s and my brother is in his early 30s. It pains me to see both of them struggling through this. They're both really great people, generous with their time, and I love them both.

It would mean the world to me if there was anything that could be done to make both of their lives easier. It is my wish that a cure would be found as soon as possible which is why I started this fundraiser. That would be the best birthday gift EVER!

Please donate to Mysathenia Gravis Foundation to help find a cure for this disease.
Whatever you can do would help tremendously.

Thank you so much!
