MGFA Helpline

Whether you are newly diagnosed with MG or have been living with the disease for some time, you're likely to have questions about MG management from time to time. Having a reliable source of information is vital, which is why the MGFA is excited about offering our MGFA Helpline.


Professional counselors are here to answer your questions about living with myasthenia gravis, provide emotional health support, and guide you to resources to help you manage MG.



9:00 AM - 8:00 PM EST


While helpline operators can’t provide medical guidance (only a treating healthcare provider should do that), they can direct you to information and resources, including but not limited to:

  • How to find a qualified neuromuscular specialist
  • Finding support groups and other types of MG support
  • Where to find treatment information
  • Where to find MG emergency or general management assistance

“People often call the MGFA looking for resources,” says Samantha Masterson, MGFA president and CEO. “The new MGFA Helpline will ensure we’re ready to answer these questions in a very comprehensive and thoughtful way.”


You can still call the MGFA’s main phone number if you have a question about an MGFA program, want to get involved, need a specific MGFA resource, or would like to make a gift. Our office phone will continue to be answered from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST, and you can email us any time at
