The Mission to Find a Cure
Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a peculiar malady. It’s a chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease with vague or baffling symptoms characterized by relapses and remissions. People may be misdiagnosed or go undiagnosed for many years and it frequently targets women of child-bearing age and men in their fifth or sixth decade of life.
The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of California’s (MGFCA) was founded in 1954. Its mission is to find a cure for myasthenia gravis (MG) by funding cutting edge research and providing services for myasthenia gravis patients through low cost (and, in some cases, free) MG Clinics, Drug Bank and patient support auxiliaries throughout California and Nevada, as well as medical education, information and referrals.
