Faces of Sjögren's- You are not alone!
The Foundation knows how isolating being diagnosed with an invisible illness can be, but you are not alone. There are an estimated 4 million Americans suffering from Sjögren’s, both men and women of different ages and ethnicities.
With the launch of the SSF 5-Year Breakthrough Goal, 50in5: “To shorten the time to diagnose Sjgoren’s by 50% in 5 years” we are also hoping to change how Sjogren’s is understood.
In this section of our website, patients share their journey with Sjögren's starting from their first thought after being diagnosed to where they are now.
