It was a great day of awareness, fundraising for important resources for those living with MG, and such great support in the MG Community. Keep the momentum going! All fundraising pages will remain open through December, so there is still time to reach all of our goals. Reach out to your family, friends, and coworkers and tell them all about your great experience at the walk (be sure to show them all the photos!), and encourage them to support you. Follow up and thank all those that did donate, and please contact the MG Walk Office for any tips on post-event fundraising.
Thank you all for an amazing day, a great event, and for coming together and doing all we can to reach the ultimate finish line…a world without myasthenia gravis!
Jesse has been battling MG since 2014. Before his first symptom appeared he was a strong, healthy man pursuing his goal of becoming a firefighter. As his symptoms increased, Jesse lost the ability to eat, talk, even walk. Eventually in August 2014, Jesse’s immune system had attacked his body so much that it shut down his ability to breath on his own and he went into crisis- culminating in a 3 week stay in Kennestone Hospital. Jesse was on a ventilator for 2 1/2 weeks.
Message from Jesse: “This disease is life threatening as at anytime a person can go into crisis and. We lost dear a few dear people to this disease in 2017. I am thankful to have great doctors and medical support. Yet many still do not. That is why we need the support of the community. We are working hard to spread awareness and to raise funds to aid in more research. These donations go to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America. We need your help! $1 or $100, it doesn’t matter. Join our fight! I am excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk. The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against Myasthenia Gravis. “
