BENEFITING: Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2012
My name is George Amigdalos 41 years old born in New York, living in Orange Connecticut now. I have been living with psoriasis & psoriatic arthritis for over a decade and in 2010 I was also diagnosed with . In 2009 I had a thymectomy, even before the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis which came a year later. MG had caused some problems with my lungs and I developed bronchiectasis and I have permanent lung damage on my left lung. I have been working really hard at getting myself healthy again and I am feeling better now and have been able to exercise. My choice of exercise is cycling. I will be attempting a long ride from Connecticut to Manhattan on September 9th with support from my friend Thomas Genetzakis. The ride is about 80 miles. I would like to somehow raise awareness of this dreadful disease and possibly some money to donate to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America.
