The first time I heard of Sjogren's Syndrome was in September 2018 when my daughter, Alysa was diagnosed. I had no idea that Sjogren's was a rare, incurable autoimmune disease that causes dry eyes and mouth, extreme fatigue, chronic pain (joint), gastrointestinal issues, just to name a few. I am advocating for more research and education of this disease, so kids can be diagnosed early. It took almost a year to get a diagnosis for my daughter because her symptoms were not connected earlier. Please join me and the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation to bring awareness, education and support to the kids and families of this rare disease.
