February is Membership Renewal month for the Myasthenia Gravis Association (MGA). Annual renewals are very important to the MGA as they are our lifeline to all of you and to those newly diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis.

Many of you are consistently supportive to MGA, enabling us to continue our services and programs that are designed to help improve the life of those who struggle with this neuromuscular disease. We are asking you to continue your support of MGA and our services as they are imperative in helping to maintain the steadiness of current MG programs, and greatly assist those who are newly diagnosed.

The 2018 MGA Holiday Party was held on Sunday, November 18, 2018, at the Venetian Club in Madison Heights, MI. This was a new venue for 2018, but everyone enjoyed a great meal and the children had a great time singing holiday songs and receiving individual gifts from Santa! A special thank you to Emily Hillmer for being Santa’s helper and arranging for the gifts to be purchased, wrapped and delivered for all 29 children present. Beautiful poinsettia plants from Eckert’s Greenhouse and MGA glassware were raffled off at each table. Entertainment was provided by Rick Jones, with his wonderful piano playing. His piano playing of holiday songs was very well received and we look forward to having him return next year.

For those who are not aware, Amazon and Kroger each has a charitable giving program that gives back to your charity of choice (MGA) for each dollar spent.  It does not cost you anything and you do NOT lose your Kroger plus card discounts by enrolling in this program.  Since the loss of our United Way contribution, it is very important to MGA to receive contributions in as many ways as possible.  These programs do not cost you anything, except the time it takes to Enroll and is very much appreciated by those suffering from Myasthenia Gravis who receive the benefit of your enrollment.
