The Myasthenia Gravis Association (MGA) is a non-profit organization in the United Kingdom that is dedicated to promoting the welfare of individuals affected by myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks and damages nerve signal receptor areas in muscles, causing muscle weakness and fatigue. Although the disease may affect any muscle of the body, muscles of the eyes, lips, tongue, throat, and neck are often affected. The Myasthenia Gravis Association was established in 1968 and currently includes approximately 62 branches (and another five on the way) throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The association is committed to offering information and support to affected individuals and their family members, promoting public and professional awareness, and raising funds for research to improve diagnosis and treatment of the disease and, ultimately, to find a cure.
