    Diabetes Awareness Month 2016 is here!

    Awareness is incredibly important, and it can be surprising how little people know about the condition, how it develops, and what to do to help someone in an emergency. We're painting the world blue this November.

    We're sharing some wallpapers which you can download for your phone below! To download right click the image and save as.

    How can I get involved?

    I have Myasthenia Gravis How much do you know about it not much I warrant.

    Yet there was a concerted MG awareness campaign with posters on bill boards, bus stops ads on TV and in news papers.

    Yet I still have to explain it time and time again even to health care professionals.

    I am afraid very pessimistic of the outcome of these campaigns but hope beyond hope that your efforts will be successful.

    Regards John.
