Support Rebecca Lobo's Work On Sjogren's Advocate

Rebecca (Bexi) Lobo, PhD, is a freelance editor and scientist living with Sjogren’s (SHOW-grins). She has deep experience editing scientific manuscripts and writing about complex science for the layperson. She has designed and edited Sjogren’s Advocate off and on over the last three years.

Rebecca’s technical and editorial support will free up Dr. Sarah Schafer to work on new Sjogren’s Advocate content. Please read this blog post to learn about Dr. Schafer’s work and why professional support from Rebecca is essential to moving forward.

In contrast to other websites, Sjogren’s Advocate goes beyond simply informing readers about Sjogren's. It provides tools and strategies that patients can use to work with their clinicians, especially when it comes to the systemic (non-dryness) aspects of Sjogren's. Sjogren’s Advocate has helped many people get proper diagnosis and care in a system that tends to ignore and downplay this serious autoimmune disease.

To date, most of Rebecca’s contributions have been as a volunteer but this arrangement is not sustainable. Therefore, this GoFundMe campaign exists to raise $6,000 to pay for the next 4-6 months of Rebecca’s work on Sjogren’s Advocate. For Sjogren’s Advocate updates, please subscribe to the mailing list.

Please offer only what you can comfortably give. Sjogren’s Advocate will continue to be freely available to everyone, regardless of your ability to donate. If you prefer to write a check, please contact Rebecca Lobo through this page (please see the green contact button below) for instructions on where to mail the check.


Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and support.
