2020 Reunion of Champions Video Message - March 20, 2020


2020 Reunion of Champions Event Update  - March 9, 2020

Dear SWF Partners,

The Sturge-Weber Foundation will be adhering to the AAD lead and guideline to change venues for this year’s annual gathering of dermatologists and partners from around the world. It saddens us to have to rearrange the Reunion of Champions kick off event which supports year long patient and physician programs and vital research grants. We will miss catching up with you and celebrating the SWF’s, Dr. Henry Chan's and Dr. Jill Waibel’s contributions to dermatology and our patients. 

However, the SWF will be changing the venue and hosting a virtual event to share all the SWF and honorees accomplishments. 

We appreciate our honorees and sponsors dedication to the SWF mission and patients and their wishes to still support the 2020 SWF patients, programs and funding $100,000 in research grants. The SWF will be featuring their ads and congratulation messages during the virtual event and throughout the year just as before the AAD notice.  I personally look forward to viewing this fun and no doubt laughter filled online event. Please look for more information to follow on how you can participate and share in the event!

It is our sincere hope that you and those you love remain healthy and virus free as our world will eventually right itself of this global pandemic. As a Port Wine Birthmark and a Sturge-Weber syndrome diagnosis have taught many of us, we must have courage in the face of adversity and this too shall pass! Best wishes for any travels up ahead and we look forward to seeing you all once again in the near future. 

With faith, hope and love,

Karen L Ball
President and CEO
The Sturge-Weber Foundation
