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’. There are other forms which include Ocular Myasthenia, Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome and Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome.
Ronnie Whelan’s Walk 2014
Ronnie Whelan’s Walk for myaware recently took place and the team walked from Donegal to Galway 30th May – 3rd June.
We were delighted to be joined this year by none other than Buster Brady (AKA Danny O’Carroll) of Mrs Brown’s Boys and Elmo from Love/hate (Laurence Kinlan). The guys were fantastic although they were aching and had blisters managed the full 108 miles raising a lot of awareness for myasthenia. Read more on our walk page.
