The American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders (APFED) Honors Disney Star Demi Lovato and the Jonas Group's Ned Specktor, as 2009-2010 Honorary Ambassadors of Education
Date:5/5/2009

"Ned and I are honored to be recognized by APFED," said Demi Lovato. "We hope our affiliation with APFED will help expand awareness, diagnosis, education and funding to help find a cure for our friend Sarah and the tens of thousands others suffering with this difficult disease."

Eosinophilic Disorders (EGIDs) are chronic and characterized by a large number of eosinophils (white blood cells) and inflammation in the esophagus (the tube connecting the mouth to the stomach). Symptoms include difficulty swallowing, vomiting, stomach or chest pain, and a failure to thrive. There is no cure and research is ongoing to advance a new treatment option.

"Demi's heart is as big as her smile," said Sarah Wisely, age 16, living with an EGID. "Most people don't understand the struggles of living with an Eosinophilic Disorder because the disease is relatively unknown. I live daily with diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and gain nutrition through a feeding tube, but I always pull myself up to get through the day at school. Demi and Ned have been so great and supportive to me, and very interested in my disease. I am so proud that my Community is recognizing them for their commitment to helping us."

"We were so moved by Demi and Ned's interest and support of Eosinophilic Disorders that we wanted to honor them and show our appreciation of their efforts," said Elizabeth Mays, Founder of APFED. "The need for education and fundraising in EGIDs is very large and growing rapidly in recent years, yet even this smallest gesture of kindness and understanding goes a long way to make a difference in people's lives. We hope the light shined on APFED through Demi and Ned's involvement will help further our reaching our mission around Education, Awareness, Support and Research to find a cure for all living with eosinophilic disorders."
