Patient Support

Meetings Vary in Different Areas of Canada

Members get notice for support meetings with the MG Canada newsletter, our website and social media, etc., before each meeting. Many meetings include a guest presentation relative to MG.  All offer an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other members in a social setting. MG Canada also provides information on support meetings and education days being organized by MG Canada and other MG organizations in Canada.

MG Canada Newsletter: Contact

On average, each issue of “Contact” presents many pages of items related to Myasthenia Gravis. “Contact” draws on a wide supply of current material, studies on MG, personal stories and more.

Personal Contact and Support

Someone newly diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis needs to know:

  • As much information about MG as available.
  • Many others that have MG are now in reasonable health.
  • Most diagnosed patients can achieve a controlled and relatively level lifestyle with time.

First contact is usually with the president, or the membership coordinator.

The caller is invited to join the Myasthenia Gravis Society of Canada.   After joining, a member receives further information. Other resources of MG Canada can be made available as needed.  MG Society of Canada may be able to put patients or family members in touch with other members who have similar experiences with MG and who have been through similar situations.
