Throughout the year, we will celebrate this milestone and reflect on the tireless work and generous donations of the Committee and Association members over the years.
We are particularly grateful for the dedicated work of our Founder Elton Rogers who started this wonderful association along with early Committee members, contributors, and donors. The first meeting was held on 24 March, 1982.
Over the 40 years since then: we have provided important patient support and resources with a growing online and social media presence; met every three months to provide face to face support; and published over 160 newsletters. The wider myasthenic community has benefitted from our many donations, totalling approximately $78,000, towards equipment in various hospitals and national MG projects.
Members will receive more information about an event to celebrate our 40th anniversay in June 2022.
We’re also asking members to send in your stories and memories or share any photos that tell us a bit about the 40 years of MG NSW. Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to contribute your stories or photos for our 40th year celebrations. We’re keen to hear from you, whether you’re a long-time or new member, so get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
