MY STORY
 
You have what?   What is it?  How do you spell it?  Answers to these questions had to be explained to my family, friends and even nurses.  Sjogren's is an autoimmune disease affecting my moisture glands.  My symptoms are dryness of skin, mouth, nose, and eyes along with fatigue and joint pain.
 
A doctor referred to Sjogren's as a "nuisance rather than a serious disease";  however, my mouth, parotid glands, ears, nose, throat and skin were (and are) constantly dry. Then I developed Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma, shingles and H. Pylori.  For me, and for many others, Sjogren's is far more than just a nuisance! 
 
The blessing is that I've become a much stronger person dealing with Sjogren's and its complications.  I have my faith and all of you, my family and friends, to thank.  You have been with me every step of the way, and I sincerely thank you. 
 
Sjogren's is still unknown to many people.  Funds are needed for new research to understand the complexities so that the cause and cure will be discovered. 
 
Sjogren's Syndrome Facts:

Sjogren's affects up to four million Americans

Nine out of ten Sjogren's patients are women

It can spread throughout the entire body causing joint pain, major organ failure, and lymphomas   

 

Please join Carol's Cherubs during the first walkabout in Connecticut.  This walkabout focuses on awareness of Sjogren's Syndrome while helping to raise money to support the SSF's research and education programs.

Carol
