I have recently come across Pat's Fund with the policy work I am doing for Washington state. Judi Rising is one of our state's most passionate advocates fighting for autoimmune disease awareness, education and advocacy. Her life has been personally touched by autoimmune disease and this has motivated her to create change and better understanding of the diseases that are impacted. She puts on an event called "Living with Autoimmunity" which brings the many different faces together to discuss relevant and impactful information. I have been very impressed with this organization from both a business and a personal perspective.
