…dedicated to raising awareness of Myasthenia Gravis.
June is Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month, the month I wear my MG hat and shine a spotlight on a rare disease, which I have lived with since 1956, so others will become aware and MG can begin to be recognized and no longer be a secret.
Share about Myasthenia Gravis
Are you a caregiver, a patient, a physician, or anyone who has had an experience in the world of myasthenia gravis? Consider sharing few moments, perhaps a few paragraphs, from a true story, a comment about a situation, an episode that was not expected…something that could help someone else. Something we all can learn from. Share with your friends, or share here.
Learn about Myasthenia Gravis
It is during June that I let others know aspects about myasthenia gravis that they might not have known, that they then can share with another person, making the next person also aware that myasthenia gravis is a real disease. By the end of June I will have shared, through the blog posts here, about the disease myasthenia gravis:
- Children can read about MG
- How to pronounce
- What is Myasthenia Gravis?
- Related terms
- How to prepare for a doctor’s appointment
- What is a crisis
- What are causes
- Who might get it
Consider signing up to get notice of the remaining posts during this awareness month. Or forward URL to someone you think might benefit. That’s it!
These aspects help someone searching to find other links online to add to their information they can take to a doctor’s appointment. Once a doctor is in the discussion, and if diagnosis is confirmed, there are treatments, there are plans, there are ways ahead for the doctor and the patient to work out together.
Knowing about a disease helps us be able to consider whether we might talk to our doctor or not. Plus, it helps us understand those who have MG, as well as give hope to those who might have it, yet are still looking for a diagnosis. Our story might help one person!
Be part of the MG Ripple of Hope
If you, a caregiver for someone with MG, or a physician who has had experiences with MG, or if someone you know has myasthenia gravis, let them see this invitation.
Become part of the ripple of hope by telling one other person about MG—have that conversation, as we raise awareness.
Watch tomorrow June 7, 2021, for post “What is Myasthenia Gravis” from Rebekah Dorr, owner/moderator of group, Myasthenia Gravis Unmasked, on Facebook.
And if you have time, read a piece of my story,
