Welcome

When you volunteer for a small charity like MGA you aren’t just a number. You are an important part of our team and family. We get to know every volunteer and work closely with you because you are priceless! Make a difference in 2014 to 100s of Irish families… Become part of our family

Thank You!

2013 was a tough year for many charities, MGA included. With less money to go round and more people and organisations in need than ever it’s hard to survive when you are so small.

So we want to take moment to say a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you who have donated, volunteered or helped us fundraise – we can’t do it without you.

How you can help in 2014

What is Mysthenia?

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is an auto-immune disease in which the immune system attacks and damages the nerve signal reception areas. This causes a breakdown between nerves and muscles and results in loss of effectiveness in the muscles of the arms, legs and eyes. The name ‘Myasthenia Gravis’ comes from the Greek and Latin words for ‘grave muscular weakness’.
