Walkabout For Sjogren's Syndrome


Jennifer Pettit, over at Understanding Invisible Illness has written a couple of spirited posts about an upcoming fundraiser for the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation in Philadelphia on May 1st. She is quickly becoming an enthusiastic advocate for those of us with invisible illness in her work, in her faith community, and in her daily life.

If you don't already donate to the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation, you may want to consider sponsoring Jen as she participates in the 2010 Philadelphia Tri-State Sjogren's Syndrome Walkabout. You can read more about her participation here.

You go, girl!

Research for autoimmune diseases is desperately needed and greatly underfunded. Monies collected from this walkabout and other fundraising efforts by the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation help support research and awareness campaigns.

Thanks, Julia! See, this is what I mean. Today I was feeling very low about the walk, I'm impatient for people from work and church to sign up, and had the fleeting thought "oh just give up, they don't care". And then you renewed my faith in humanity;) It's a good thing there's people like you around keeping the rest of us afloat!
