On June 5, 2016, the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of Illinois became known as Conquer Myasthenia Gravis (Conquer MG for short).
Why? With this change we are updating our look to reflect our active, forward-thinking, patient-centered focus. It communicates our vision to wipe out MG, and our goal to provide expanded services in Illinois, northwest Indiana, and southeast Wisconsin. Though our face-to-face services have a local reach, we also serve as a national resource to people with MG.
What will change? Only our name. As Conquer MG, we remain rooted in our mission, as an independent nonprofit organization. Our website URL remains www.myastheniagravis.org.
What is the mission? In short, to help MG patients and their families through programs of support, education, awareness raising, and research funding.
