Fundraising Ideas

Why 29th May? 29th May would have been John F Kennedy’s birthday. The US President managed his Addison's disease and other autoimmune conditions in secret, read more on our blog. As arguably the most well-known public figure with Addison's, John F Kennedy’s birthday is a fitting date for us to raise awareness and celebrate the achievements of people with Addison's and adrenal insufficiency.
