Thankful, Grateful

Last updated: August 2022

I was diagnosed in 1974 with this disease. I had double vision and was very weak in my arms. I fell down the steps going out the front door with my toddler in my arms and that's when my legs gave out.

I saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with MG and went through a lot of tests to confirm it. I had my thymus gland removed and was on Mestinon for years.

My Pastor's wife taught me how to use my faith in God to help heal me and I did. I am 69 years old and am doing fine due to the grace of God. I cleaned our church for 34 years and I know God gave me the strength to do that kind of job for so long.

I am thankful and grateful for my strength and pray for all of you that God does the same for you as he did it for me. You ladies and gentlemen are awesome people.
