Hey Y'all!!

How I Got Started!

In 1993 at the age of 6, my life changed in many ways. I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis: a rare chronic autoimmune disease that causes abnormal weakness of all voluntary muscles. It is caused by a breakdown in communication between nerves and muscles. Treatment is used to maintain and subdue symptoms, but there is no cure for this disease. We didn’t know much about this disease but my mother made sure I had what I needed and lived a normal childhood. As I got older, the disease grew with me but I still continued on with my daily life. I participated in school activities, I played with my friends, and everything else you can think of children doing I did. Entering into my adult life was no different. I LIVED! I attended college and graduated, I travel when I find time to do it, and my most important and accomplished job being a parent.
After 22 years, in 2015, of being crisis free, I had my very first one. The experience kicked off some major life reflections with this disease and what it does to patients like myself. From that year to 2017, I was hospitalized 5 times because of it and I was determined to get back to the old me. I had a conversation with an emergency room nurse and she told me in all the years she’s been a nurse, over 25 years, I was her second patient that had Myasthenia Gravis. I was extremely shocked when she said that. As we got deeper into our talk, that got me to thinking “what can I do to change this and bring this to light?” I had noticed my area St. Louis, MO didn’t have anything established concerning Myasthenia Gravis so I decided to take on this job and create My Walk with MG. I want to service my area and surrounding areas with as much knowledge as I can on the foundation of my life. I have lived with this disease over 26 years, so I know with my walk I can help encourage others.
With the help of my Myasthenia Gravis community, family, and friends, I will make sure that My Walk with MG brings awareness to the world!

Meet Deanna!

My Walk with MG educates Communities and surrounding areas about Myasthenia Gravis

“MG has no boundaries, so why should I? Why should I limit myself when the disease doesn’t have a limit. That’s not fair. That is not a fair fight if I let up. So I will continue to push the boundaries of every second of every day, knowing by doing that, I will always come out ahead. - @deanna_steinle ”

@deanna_steinle IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!! WE SHOULDN'T LIMIT OURSELVES AT ALL!! STAND TALK, FACE IT HEAD ON, AND WATCH HOW LIFE UNFOLDS FOR YOU!! WE ONLY GET ONE AND YOU BEST BELIEVE WE'RE GOING TO LIVE IT!!
