Carrie Ann Inaba Stands Up for Sjögren's

Since publicly announcing her Sjögren's diagnosis in 2016, it has been the SSF’s honor to work with Carrie Ann Inaba, Dancing with the Stars judge, new co-host of The Talk, & SSF National Awareness Ambassador. Once again, I applaud Carrie for being open about her journey with this complex disease and how she learned to become her own best advocate.” -Steven Taylor, SSF CEO

“’It [being diagnosed with Sjögren's] was debilitating,’ says Inaba… ‘I was in so much pain, I just had to survive. I had to stay in bed three days a week, and I’m so fortunate because I had the kind of job where I could do that. There were days I could barely make my coffee because I was so exhausted.’ In the process of coming to terms with Sjögren's, Inaba says she looked inward… ‘I did a lot of soul searching. I learned about who I am besides being a sexy dancer chick. And ironically, as I let all that go, I found my way back to feeling vibrant and radiant again.’” Click here to read more.
