About

For 2018/19 our chosen charity is Myaware.

Myaware is a UK based charity dedicated solely to the care & support of people affected by Myasthenia

Myasthenia Gravis is a rare autoimmune disease where the nerve impulses required for triggering muscle contractions are blocked. This results in degrees of muscle weakness & most commonly affects the muscles that control the eyes & eyelids, facial expressions, chewing, swallowing & speaking. But it can affect most parts of the body

There's currently no cure & symptoms vary in severity but can be managed by immunosuppressant medications

Myaware provides support for people with myasthenia & their families, campaigns for better medical services for people with myasthenia & works to inform medical professionals. Also funding research to seek better treatments & ultimately a cure, as well as funding specialists nurses. Members of myaware have full access to a wide range of support services, including specialist counsellors

Due to the rarity of MG, Myaware is a small charity that would greatly benefit from awareness & support
