MGFA MG Patient Helpline

Whether you are newly diagnosed with MG or have been living with the disease for decades, 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 MG Patient Helpline starting on June 17, 2024!

 

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

 

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
  • How to find financial or medical resources 
  • 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 MG Patient Helpline will ensure we’re ready to answer these questions in a very comprehensive and thoughtful way.”

 

The actual MG Patient Helpline toll free number will be available on June 17, 2024. Of course, 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 mgfa@myasthenia.org.
