AERD logoOur goal is to raise $10,000 before AERD Awareness Day, which will be held on September 26, 2021. We hope we can count on you to help us reach our goal!

You can help adults living with aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) live healthier and better lives.

Your gift to the AERD Research Fund, jointly organized by the Samter’s Society and Allergy & Asthma Network, will mean so much to people with AERD. They will receive the benefit of research to find better treatments and a cure, all because of you.

AERD, also known as Samter’s Triad, is a chronic medical condition that consists of asthma, recurrent nasal polyps and sensitivity to aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The condition greatly impacts quality of life. A prompt diagnosis and a treatment plan is a critical part of restoring health and quality of life.

The theme of this year’s AERD Awareness Day is “Get the Right Diagnosis.” Your donation to the AERD Research Fund will help people like Rhonda, whose diagnosis was delayed for a year until she found an allergist who diagnosed her with AERD. Once she had a treatment plan, her health and quality of life improved.

Prompt diagnosis, better treatments and a cure are still needed to restore the health and lives of all people living with AERD.

All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to support AERD research at the Brigham & Women’s AERD Center, the Penn Medicine AERD Center and Scripps AERD Clinic. These groups are dedicated to learning more about AERD, improving treatment options, and supporting patient advocacy efforts.
