One of the things that has shocked her most since her diagnosis, is how little doctors know about MG. During her first crisis, the ER didn’t seem to know what to do and was overwhelmed, though luckily the pulmonologist knew what to do. Just recently she underwent Lasik eye surgery and was given a prescription for a medication she knows would react negatively with her MG. The knowledge seems to be very limited, and a member of the medical community, and the MG community, Lauren hopes to bridge that gap.
Last year was the first year Lauren was able to participate in the MG Walk…and became one of the most successful fundraisers of the entire campaign. Her team, Vent Stoppers, raised over $18,000 for the South Carolina MG Walk, thanks to the generosity and support of her family and friends. This year, she’s been an integral part in moving the Walk to Charleston and working to engage the local support groups in the area and the large medical community for the Walk’s third year. Her incredible team and support system are back to walk with her again this year. As the MG Walk Hero, she hopes to inspire others to keep their positivity through their new reality with MG. She has been through so much since her diagnosis, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. She is working hard to raise the funds and awareness needed for MG patients so there can be better treatments, no complications, and ultimately a cure for MG.
