"SHOWgrins" Author Becomes Sjogren's Patient

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page where you can receive a complimentary copy of my gold medal award-winning "SHOWgrins" book!  Because I am also a Sjogren's patient, I want to help raise funds to support the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation (SSF) mission.

I originally thought I had Sjogren's in 2011. At the end of my book, I wrote that even though I found out I didn't have it, my life was far better after meeting the five fabulous women in the book who did. 

Unfortunately my symptoms worsened, and a few years later the same rheumatologist who told me he didn't think I had Sjogren's formally diagnosed me on February 2, 2015. WOW! I never wanted to have Sjogren's, but I did want to know if I had it so that I could learn how to live well despite having it. 

So my journey continues, and I am still donating proceeds from the book to the SSF. You can help by spreading the word about my book and also by donating to this page. As Steven Taylor, CEO of the SSF proclaimed: "This book will captivate you as you read the five inspirational stories of courage, determination and spirit from women who refuse to define themselves as only Sjogren's patients. Join them on their journey of self-discovery as they reclaim their lives and find new purposes and meaning to how they can make a difference and be the women they always wanted to be." For more information about the book, click here to visit my website: showgrins.com

You can also click here to purchase a copy of the book directly from the SSF.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

If you make a donation of any amount, I will send you a complimentary PDF copy of the book. Please include in your comments when you donate if you'd like to receive a complimentary copy.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
