Serving those living with Myasthenia Gravis, their families and friends in Missouri, Kansas, and Northwest Arkansas
We sponsor support groups, public awareness events, and special events throughout the year. Including our annual Triple Crown Walk and annual auction.
The Myasthenia Gravis Association (MGA) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who are affected by this autoimmune, neuromuscular disease through awareness, education, and member services.
Who We Are
Every June the MGA spreads Myasthenia Gravis awareness by sending press releases to local media. We also mail information to neurologists, first responders, opthamologists, nurses, and hospital social work departments that may be helpful in diagnosing and treating MG patients.
Myasthenia Gravis is a rare, chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that results in progressive skeletal (voluntary) muscle weakness. It affects about 1 in 5,000 people.
