Sjögren’s (“SHOW-grins”) is a systemic autoimmune disease that affects the entire body. Along with symptoms of extensive dryness, other serious complications include profound fatigue, chronic pain, major organ involvement, neuropathies and lymphomas. Today, as many as four million Americans are living with this disease.
Due to lack of awareness, it takes on average 3 years to diagnose. All proceeds from the “Walkabout” will go directly to the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation, the only non-profit health organization dedicated solely to Sjögren’s, funds raised support education, research and awareness initiatives.
