Myaware, the Charity

Myasthenic Kids is a Branch of Myaware formerly the Mysthenia Gravis Association of the UK.

Most branches work on a local basis, but it became clear (as we planned this), that for a children’s branch to work it had to be national.

Myaware provides a huge amount of practical support to the chidlren’s branch, and several of the organisers of Myasthenic Kids are also Trustees in the Myaware.

About the Myaware

Myaware, (formally The Myasthenia Gravis Association)  is an organisation registered as a charity on 19th May 1995. However we have been around as an organisation since May 1976, offering support to Myasthenics and their families, increasing public and medical awareness and raising funds for research. Myasthenia Gravis is a severe muscle weakening disease.

Myaware headquarters are based at The College Business Centre, Derby. with Myaware branches throughout the Myaware regions

Myaware acts as a contact point putting sufferers and their families in touch with each other so that they do not feel isolated in dealing with this rare disease. The association also puts members in touch with other appropriate agencies for any specific problems they are facing, for example problems with benefits.
