Autoimmune Walk

Autoimmune Walk The AARDA Autoimmune Walk brings a national focus to autoimmune diseases; raises funds for critical research; and provides hope to 50 million sufferers.
AARDA is the only national charity dedicated to bringing a national focus to autoimmunity, the major cause of serious chronic diseases. Approximately 50 million Americans, 20 percent of the population or one in five people, suffer from autoimmune diseases. Women are more likely than men to be affected; some estimates say that 75 percent of those affected — some 30 million people — are women. Still, with these statistics, autoimmunity is rarely discussed as a women’s health issue; and basic autoimmune research is significantly underfunded. AARDA has launched the Autoimmune Walk to change all this. When we link together, we are stronger. WHEN WE LINK TOGETHER, A CURE IS CLOSER!

AARDA wholeheartedly believes that Black Lives Matter. For those in the Black community with autoimmune disease, we pledge to close harmful gaps that delay diagnosis, impede access to treatment, and otherwise undermine health and well-being. Black patients, their family members, and health care providers deserve better. We will listen, we will act, and we will be accountable for our actions supporting equity and justice in healthcare and in society. We are with you.

V-Strong Vitiligo Support Community

*** YOUR HELP IS NEEDED...

Hello Vitiligo Community PSA:

As you all are aware, the FDA's Patient-Focused Drug Development on Vitiligo meeting previously scheduled for March 30th, 2020 was postponed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. I have not heard any further information regarding the when the meeting will now be held. However, one of our colleagues in the American Academy of Dermatology just reminded me that they would still like comments from individuals with vitiligo as well as their loved ones regarding the impact of the condition and perspectives on vitiligo treatments and these comments MUST BE SUBMITTED BY JUNE 1st, 2020 in order to be included in the comments collected for the original meeting. See below for details on how to submit the questions and for examples of some other questions you can comment on *(You can also just make any comments you would like). Please submit your comments ASAP and please ask your support group members and anyone else you know affected by vitiligo to submit their questions right away as well. This is an incredible opportunity to shape the opinion of our government officials regarding vitiligo and greatly accelerate the development of vitiligo treatments (and, ultimately, a vitiligo cure) as a result. Please take note here is the website :
https://www.regulations.gov/documents?D=FDA-2020-N-02550001.

- Comments can be submitted now through June 1st
PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO SUBMIT.. THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD

TO ALL OUR FRIENDS WHO ARE FEDERAL EMPLOYEES: The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has re-opened and will be extended through June 30, 2020! This is great news for AARDA because the coronavirus pandemic has put a strain on our resources and limited our ability to help autoimmune patients. The CFC online giving portal (opm.gov/ShowSomeLoveCFC) is a safe, trusted and proven way to make contributions. You can also give through the CFC GIVING mobile app. If you are able to give a new gift or add to your existing CFC pledge, please do so before June 30. We will put these emergency funds to work right away! Our CFC # is 10548.

*** AARDA HAS TRANSITIONED OUR BOSTON, NEW YORK, HOUSTON AND LOS ANGELES AUTOIMMUNE WALKS TO VIRTUAL WALKS until it is safe for us to gather together again. The health, safety and well-being of our participants and supporters is, and always has been, our top priority. In the past, Virtual Walkers have done smaller versions of AARDA-hosted Walks in places where we were unable to go. NOW, WE ASK THAT VIRTUAL WALKERS ONLY DO CAMPAIGNS FROM YOUR HOMES, REACHING OUT TO RECRUIT TEAM MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS FROM YOUR COMPUTERS AND PHONES. We realize that the needs of your families, friends, and neighbors are paramount during this time. We also hope to continue serving the autoimmune community now and going forward. And we can only do that with you help. If you can do a Virtual Walk campaign for AARDA, or make a donation, please sign up at the link below. You can also make a one-time $20 donation by phone. Just text AARDA to 20222 (see flyer for details). THANK YOU for being there for us and for the community we serve. http://autoimmunewalk.org/locationpage.asp?BranchID=133
