Mysthenia Gravis Group Celebrates The Holiday
The Harry Krewsun Myasthenia Gravis Support Group held its annual holiday meeting in December. Members brought refreshments as the group talked about the challenges of living with Myasthenia Gravis. In 2019, the support group will hold meetings on the first Saturday in January, March, May, July, September and November at Odyssey Fitness refreshment area. The group will hold its traditional meetings in February, April, June, August, October and December at Allied Services Scranton on the first Saturday of the month. The meeting is held in the community room. The meetings start at 11 a.m. Anyone who wants more information on the disease may attend any meeting. Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular disease that affects breathing, eating, vision and mobility. It affects thousands of people in Northeastern PA but because this is a disease where most everyone looks healthy, it has been relegated to the category of orphan disease.
