MGAQ 30 YEAR SNIPPET
In 1991 a group of people with a common interest met for coffee. Their common interest was a relatively unknown medical condition called Myasthenia Gravis.
When their specialist first told them they had the condition it was always followed by the question “What is that?”
This group shared stories about this auto-immune condition, picked up hints on the best way to manage the symptoms and discussed different medications and reactions to them. This group continued to meet regularly and realised that there must be other people in the same position as themselves who needed help and support.
Thus, this was the very beginning of what is now the Myasthenia Gravis Association of Queensland Inc.
