Are you or someone you know looking for phone support? Connect with an MG Friend!
MG Friends are here to support you! Our free peer-to-peer phone support program, MG Friends, helps to ensure that everyone in the community gets the information they need, and know they are not alone in living with myasthenia gravis. While Support Groups are critical to service delivery, there are many people who are not able to access this service or who feel more comfortable talking one-on-one than sharing in a group setting. MG Friends provides the opportunity for a person with questions and concerns to connect to someone else with MG—no matter where they live in the United States.
Myasthenia Advocacy for Young Adults (MAYA)
The MGFA’s Myasthenia Advocacy for Young Adults (MAYA) is guided by the desire to help young adults on how to live a successful and positive MG lifestyle. In an effort to create a community for young MG patients to share their experiences and knowledge, MAYA develops discussion topics and engagement opportunities that are relative to the young adult demographic. MAYA offers virtual meet-ups and networking experiences, where all individuals feel welcomed and supported.

Walk for a World Without MG
The MG Walk is dedicated to raising awareness, renewing hope, and connecting communities around MG. The Walk raises critical funds for research, patient services, education and advocacy. The Walk puts the power directly into the hands of the community; allowing everyone battling this illness to become part of the driving force for MG research, to ultimately find a cure. The Walk also provides a space to share and support each other in a safe and nurturing environment, often for the first time, while joining with community. Be a part of the movement!
Although MGFA is a national organization, we understand that there are benefits in having the support of regional organizations; believing in the notion that “together we’re stronger”. MGFA is proud to promote these sister organizations that help promote awareness and support persons diagnosed with mg on a more local level.
