Healing Hero Spotlight: Sally
Healing Heroes are the heart of our community. They go above and beyond to support the IPPF community by making sustaining, monthly gifts to support our mission of improving the quality of life for all those affected by pemphigus and pemphigoid. Join Sally and become a Healing Hero today.
Make better patient “access to care” a reality.
Become a Healing Hero.
And start making a difference today.
Because pemphigus and pemphigoid are so rare, it can be difficult for patients to find doctors with experience in treating these diseases. Sally, a mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) patient, became a Healing Hero in 2017, shortly after being diagnosed. Her local doctors were unfamiliar with the disease, but luckily, she was able to find a local specialist through the IPPF’s Find a Doctor map.
“Without the IPPF, I don’t know what I would have done. But I do know that my treatment would have been tragically delayed. I highly encourage you to become a Healing Hero and pay it forward so that the IPPF is there for us as well as for those with pemphigus and pemphigoid around the world.”
A monthly gift of $15 or more would make a tremendous difference, help patients like Sally, and allow us to screen and add new medical professionals to our Find a Doctor map, increasing patients’ access to care.
