sjrogens syndrome

      Venus Williams just diagnosed with sjrogens—-very sad– I am not glad she has it—-but on the other hand am glad it is waking the world up to auto-immune diseases, how they are on the rise. No matter how healthy you are—you are not immune to them!!!
      maybe with someone famous getting this it will bring a little more attention to research and cures! Sjrogens is one of the first things they tested me for–after MS, even though I didnt have the dry eyes, mouth etc??? Sorry for Venus and what it might do to her tennis career—but if it brings attention to the disease it may help a lot of people. Lori

      I agree. Michael J. Fox raised the profile of Parkinson’s Disease unbelievably. I would be interested to know how much more money has been raised either directly or indirectly for Parkinson’s as a result of such a high profile celebrity being diagnosed.
