Event description

Description

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a rare chronic auto-immune neuromuscular disease which can strike anyone at any age. The symptoms are severe fatigue and muscle weakness in eyes, throat, limbs, and chest which can compromise breathing, leading to a crisis situation.

As these symptoms are fluctuating and present differently in each patient, MG is very difficult to diagnose and to treat. If diagnosed and treated early, there is hope for a nearly normal life with and sometimes without medication. More research is needed into the cause and treatment of Myasthenia Gravis and for more doctors to recognise this rare orphan disease.

We thank all patrons for ticket proceeds that, together with individual donations, will help fund this cause that advances the mission of MGABC. Please also consider making a gift through Canada Helps by visiting myastheniagravis.ca.
