Conquering Sjogren’s: Follow us on our journey to change the face of Sjogren’s

World Sjögren's Day 2019

 On July 23rd, the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation (SSF) invites you to participate in World Sjögren's Day - the perfect opportunity for people to come together to raise awareness about this devastating disease.

World Sjögren's Day was established by the SSF more than a decade ago and is the birthday of Dr. Henrik Sjögren (who first identified the disease in 1933). More importantly, it is meant to put a face on the millions of people who live with this disease and for everyone touched by the disease to come together to conquer the complexities of Sjögren's. 

World Sjögren's Day is also a valuable vehicle to educate others about the disease; it is a reason to donate or help raise funds to further Sjögren's research and education; and it draws attention to the impact Sjögren's has on people around the world!

During the month of July, YOU can help make a difference:

  • Share Your Story & Raise Funds: Create a personalized fundraising page and share why this cause is so important to you. Then ask your family and friends to support your efforts by making a donation to help conquer the complexities of Sjögren's.
  • Help Raise Awareness: Talk about Sjögren's with the people in your life. Share your personal story or that of a loved one with family, friends, neighbors or co-workers. Educate those around you about the disease. You can use this fact sheet to help.
On World Sjögren's Day, and all month long, join with others to have your voice heard and help conquer the complexities of Sjögren's. TOGETHER, we can make a difference!
