Welcome to My Personal Page
Please join me in my efforts to support the Sjögren’s Foundation! I have been suffering with Sjögren’s since 2002 and my symptoms continue to get worse every year.
If you can make it, please join me on the Zoom Virtual Opening Ceremonies at 10:30am MT on Saturday, June 10th. After the opening ceremonies, we can all walk from wherever we are safely! If you live in the Denver area, we can walk together.
Let me know if you want to join my team and I will send you the link. I would be honored if you join my virtual team!
Sjögren’s is the second most prevalent rheumatic autoimmune disease striking as many as four million Americans making it three times more common than lupus and multiple sclerosis. Despite its prevalence, Sjögren’s still remains relatively unknown.
What is Sjögren’s? (SHOW-grins)
Sjögren’s is a devastating disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the moisture-producing glands. Along with symptoms of dryness it can affect any body organ or system.
Founded in 1983, the Foundation provides patients with practical information and coping strategies that minimize the effects of Sjögren's. In addition, the Foundation is the clearinghouse for medical information and is the recognized national advocate for Sjögren's.
The Foundation's mission is to:
• Support Sjögren’s patients and their loved ones through education, resources and services
• Provide credible resources and education for healthcare professionals
• Serve as the voice for all Sjögren’s patients through advocacy and awareness initiatives
• Lead, encourage and fund innovative research projects to better understand, diagnose and treat Sjögren’s
Stay safe and healthy! Hope to see you virtually on June 10th! Together we can make a difference!e!
Thank you so much for supporting me in my efforts to bring awareness to this often debilitating disease.
