June is International Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month.
June Awareness month for Myasthenia Gravis is worldwide and MGAQ has organised through local
Councils and private organisations to “Light Up” landmarks in recognition of Myasthenia. Please go
and view these landmarks. Take a moment to reflect on your myasthenia journey. Capture the image
and share so myasthenia can gain more awareness in the community. This will help research. This
will help you with your myasthenia journey.
