I want to start the New Year by thanking the Directors, the Executive Board and Advisory Board for all of your hard work in helping me build The Rachel Esther Myasthenia Gravis Foundation. Furthermore, the doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who have listened and offered advice for the Foundation deserve thanks as well. Their input has been important and has helped shape many of our goals.
Next, my family and friends are in a group all of their own, they are truly remarkable people. That said, I admit I was deeply touched by their overwhelming generosity and willingness to help teenagers with Myasthenia Gravis.
Finally, two women deserve to be singled out, Chris Almvig, Executive Director and Amy Ehlers, Program Coordinator of the Myasthenia Gravis Association located in Kansa City, Missouri. I want to personally and publicly extend my thanks to them because they are outstanding role models for me to emulate. These two women have spent countless hours encouraging me and offering their expertise in reaching out into the community to help anyone with Myasthenia Gravis. Words cannot adequately express my deep gratitude for their support and the knowledge that we are working towards a common goal – to help any person with MG and to one day find a cure for MG. Please visit their website at: www.mgakc.org and see what makes these wonderful women exceptional.
