Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune, neuromuscular disease which is manageable through various treatments, but is not curable. The prevalence of MG in the United States is estimated to be about 20 out of 100,000. Symptoms include fatigue, droopy eyelids, double vision, and difficulty smiling, speaking, swallowing, and breathing.
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.
The MGA of Kansas City is a nonprofit, United Way agency that offers a variety of services to MG patients and their caregivers. The MGA works with several neurologists in the greater Kansas City area to provide clinical diagnosis and treatments. We also provide awareness activities, education and advocacy, patient support group meetings, and a quarterly newsletter.
Our programs are sustained through fundraisers and membership drives and with the help of our volunteers. Thank you for supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Association!
