Giving Back To The Autoimmune Disease Community
Heather was diagnosed with Sjogren’s, a systemic autoimmune disease, at the age of 26. She continued to live a normal life and did so successfully by getting married, having a child, built a successful career and traveled the world.
In 2017 the Sjogren’s went into a major flare, causing disability, at that time she was also diagnosed with Lupus.
Since then Heather has reduced her work hours to spend time healing.
Heather enjoys giving back to the autoimmune disease and chronic illness communities.
She has done so by volunteering as the Calgary Support Group Leader for the Sjogren’s Society of Canada, she started this website which is dedicated to educating and empowering Sjogren’s patients, and has written this book to help describe how wonderful it is to have a helper like her young son.
