Pat's Fund

One of my family members noticed a billboard for  Pat's Fund when he was in Seattle. I hadn't heard of this non-profit agency dedicated to funding research for autoimmune disease. Here is an excerpt from their website:

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness and available money for autoimmune disease research. Amazing achievements are currently being made by the research scientists we support at Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) in Seattle, Washington. 

BRI’s team of world-renowned scientists are focused on identifying causes and cures for devastating diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Crohn’s Disease, type 1 (juvenile) diabetes, psoriasis, Addison’s Disease and the other 
75+ autoimmune diseases that affect 1 out of 5 people.
Pat's Funds donates 100% of their profits to the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason in Seattle, Washington.
