Recent memorials

The IFAA Memorial program is dedicated to people who lived with autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases with arthritis as a major component and, in their passing, would want their legacy to continue to make a difference in the community.

By participating, you can honor or commemorate the life of a friend or loved one by sharing their stories and any information about their journey with these diseases.  Visitors can make a contribution in their memory and all gifts collected will be used to help provide important resources to the community.

Memorials will include a personalized page for the honoree, which will include specific information about their disease and, if applicable, complications that can arise from those diseases.  Friends and loved ones can also submit messages, which will be posted to the tribute site.

I would like to move a mountain by supporting the IFAA:

We rely on the generosity of sponsored supporters and the kind gifts from the community to continue telling the truth about the realities of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases with arthritis as a major component. 

We do this by utilizing the patient voice to influence advocacy, education, and research. 

  • Our work helps educate the public and practitioners so those living with these diseases will be understood and diagnosed early. 
  • Ensuring the patient voice is heard in both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic research and disease management options will result in better therapies for individual needs, so future generations of patients can have improved quality of life, a better chance to achieve remission, and less permanent damage and disability. 

"Together we can move mountains.  Bulldozers are so overrated." -Tiffany Westrich-Robertson, CEO IFAA
