About Us

We support - inform - advocate - fund research

Our Mission and Vision

Conquer Myasthenia Gravis is driven by the desire to help MG patients get prompt diagnosis and optimal care. We want to improve MG patient lives through programs of patient services, public awareness, medical research funding, professional education, advocacy, and patient care.

Our vision for the future is to eliminate myasthenia gravis altogether.

Our Name and Logo

In June of 2016, the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of Illinois became known as Conquer Myasthenia Gravis (Conquer MG for short). The new name and logo reflect our active, forward-thinking, patient-centered focus. The second part of our logo communicates our goal to provide regional services in Illinois, northwest Indiana, and southeast Wisconsin. Though our face-to-face services have a local reach, we also serve as a national resource to people with MG.

Mission and History
The organization has offered caring patient support since 1972. As Conquer MG, we remain rooted in our mission, as an independent nonprofit organization.

What We Do

Board of Trustees and Staff

Medical Advisory Board
