Check out this CNN article about Venus Williams: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/31...mmune-disease/

Venus Williams had to cancel her tennis match due to the joint pain and fatigue caused by Sjogren's.
It seems that it was at first believed that she had a virus, but she now knows that she has Sjogren's.

It is a shame that our wicked disease might end her bright sports career, but I certainly hope that she continues to be outspoken about it and brings some public attention to Sjogren's and other AI diseases. There is a golfer who has been speaking out about Psoriatic Arthritis lately. I hope that these folks stir up some interest in funding some research.
