Affecting an estimated 4 million people, Sjögren’s is one of the most prevalent but lesser known autoimmune diseases. It is also not a “cookie cutter” disease and affects each patient differently. This can lead to a misunderstanding about the seriousness of this complex disease and be extremely isolating for those living with it.
One of the most important ways you can help the Foundation conquer Sjögren’s is by increasing awareness. This can be as simple as telling close friends and family about this complex disease or share a blog post on your social media. You can also become a Sjögren’s Awareness Ambassador or sign up to participate in Sjögren’s awareness outreach activities in your community.
