A Letter from President Obama to International Autoimmune Encephalitis Society

May 26, 2017 | Tabitha Andrews Orth

As a Co-founder of International Autoimmune Encephalitis Society, I wrote President Obama before he left office about Autoimmune Encephalitis. I explained the need for raised awareness, increased funding for research in the field and our mission of “Empowering victims of Autoimmune Encephalitis and their caregivers through Support and Education” so that a fast and accurate diagnosis is made leading to aggressive treatment and best outcomes. 

This is his response. It is a response I think all of our members should hear as he is speaking to them as surely as he was speaking to me.

Dear Tabitha:

Thank you for writing. I appreciate the time you took to share your

thoughts with me. Progress in our nation happens when everyday Americans get involved and come together to chart our country’s course. It’s that uniquely American character—enhanced by a rich diversity of beliefs and a deep reservoir of ideas—that has always propelled us forward. As long as citizens of every party, every background, and every walk of life continue speaking out on the issues

that matter to them and working toward the future we know is possible, our best days will always lie ahead.

Again, thank you for writing. You have my very best.

Sincerely, Barack Obama
