Autoimmune disorders can be bewildering and overwhelming, especially for moms already battling the stresses of raising kids. 50 million Americans, mostly women, have an autoimmune disease, such as Hashimoto's (http://www.autoimmunemom.com/hashimotos-thyroid), lupus (http://www.autoimmunemom.com/lupus), rheumatoid disease (http://www.autoimmunemom.com/rheumatoid-disease) and multiple sclerosis (http://www.autoimmunemom.com/multiple-sclerosis). Many people have multiple autoimmune conditions.
AutoimmuneMom.com offers moms a place to learn, to get help, to feel better. And to help even more moms, the site is on a quest to expand its Q&A section (http://www.autoimmunemom.com/questions). So from April 15 through May 14, any visitor who enters a question or answer is entered to win an amazing prize package featuring four critically acclaimed autoimmunity books:
