I hope you and your loved ones are safe and in good health while managing as well as possible during these difficult times. The Mancusos are doing well.
I also wanted to touch base (although it is very awkward/uncomfortable to do so at this time) about my ongoing outreach efforts to make a difference in the fight against Sjögren’s disease. This important cause is near and dear to my heart, as I personally suffer from Sjögren’s. Sjögren’s never, ever stop, even during the time of a world-wide crisis. My mission to support Sjögren’s patients and the Sjögren’s Foundation’s initiatives is vital and needed now more than ever.
So please consider, if you are able, supporting my efforts to help conquer Sjögren’s by making a donation on my fundraising page for the Philadelphia Zoo Virtual Walk for Sjögren’s and/or join me by walking in your neighborhood on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 10 am. The Foundation has moved their walks to virtual events to keep our patients as safe as possible. So we will all be walking on our own in our neighborhoods!
Sjögren’s is a systemic autoimmune disease that affects the entire body. It can severely impair one’s quality of life and lead to disability and sometimes death. Patients with Sjögren’s may be at higher risk of complications from COVID-19. The Sjögren’s Foundation continues to make major advances and spread awareness to conquer Sjögren’s while working harder than ever to provide help to Sjögren’s patient’s, their loved ones, and the healthcare community, by handling critical up-to-date communications, advocacy, education, resources, research, and patient support. As a non-profit, the Foundation, is in greater need of funding during this economic downturn.
If you would rather send a check, please mail it to the Sjögren’s Foundation at 10701 Parkridge Blvd, Ste. 170, Reston, VA 20191, and list my name and the Philadelphia Zoo Walk on the check.
Whether or not you can donate this year, please join me at the event. I appreciate you taking the time to learn about Sjögren’s and my mission. I can’t thank you enough for your consideration and friendship. Please stay safe and in good health,
