This Holiday Season, we have created a snowflake ornament / coaster. We will donate 100% of profits to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America.
The reason behind this ornament is the history of MG and our family. Rachel (our head designer) has suffered from this rare condition since she was 14 years old.
Together we can help make a difference.
When I was 14 years old, I was sitting in my High School English class and noticed I could look at my notebook and the blackboard at the same time. Thinking I was just tired, I brushed it off. The next day, I showed this “trick” to my mom and sister and immediately my mom scheduled an appointment to see the eye doctor. It was the first Neuro Ophthalmologist I saw to say I have MG. From then on, my parents took me near and FAR to find out more about MG, the treatment and if there is a cure.
MG was very rare to see in a teenager, and there were no support groups for patients my age. The treatment is different for every person with MG and there is currently no cure. I have been fortunate to have a support system to help me and pick me up (mentally and physically!), medications that I had to fight get approval for and have much needed surgery. There are so many people who cannot get the necessary treatments to be able to do everyday things that we take for granted like walk, talk and have a drink of water without spilling or choking.
For more than 14 years, I have struggled with MG and I have the bruised kneecaps to show for it. Each MG case is unique, which is why it is called the “Snowflake Disease.” By purchasing these ornaments/coasters, you can help find a cure and give patients young and old the knowledge they need to stay strong.
