Faces of Sjögren's- You are not alone!

As the Foundation announced in the January 2013 issue of The Moisture Seekers, we've added a new section to our website: Faces of Sjögren's.

With the launch of the SSF 5-Year Breakthrough Goal, 50in5: “To shorten the time to diagnose Sjögren’s by 50% in 5 years” we are also hoping to change how Sjögren’s is understood.

On this new web page, patients share their journey with Sjögren's starting from their first thought after being diagnosed to where they are currently. Now that you've read their first thought, find out what happens next and read their full story on our website.
