Myasthenia Gravis Association of Kansas City
June 3, 2010

I contracted MG in February of this year. It has affected my speech,neck muscles and jaw primarily. The doctor that diagnosed this told me they have no idea how you contract MG. I immediatel;y looked to see if there were any organizations that could help me with more information so I could understand my condition. I contacted the local chapet of MG here in Kansas City and I have never been more pleased with the response of "anything we can do to help you" along with all kinds of helpful literature as well. The local chapter also has regular meetings where you can not only learn more about MG but meet other people who have been afflicted with this disease.

Organizations like this are small and are always in need of additional funds in order to assist the population that have contracted Myalthenia Gravis.
