Emily Gavigan

THE STORY:

I'm Emily Gavigan, a survivor of Anti-NMDA Receptor Autoimmune Encephalitis. I was diagnosed in 2010 after over a year of misdiagnoses and overcame this disease with the love and support of my amazing family and friends and excellent care by the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

I give back to this cause by raising awareness whenever I can (including on local, national, & international platforms), writing about my experience, and attending events like th Florence Forth Road Race.

The Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance educates and raises awareness of AE. Please consider donating so that what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else.
