A breakfast fundraiser for Ginny Stoll will be held on Saturday, July 16, 8 a.m-11 a.m. at the Apostolic Christian Church Fellowship Center and is sponsored by the Winthrop Ambulance. In 2018, Ginny said that she was constantly getting sick which was something that never happened to her. In 2019, she was sent to a rheumatologist and diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome which caused her severe throat, mouth and eye dryness. She went through 29 specific lab tests to rule out different auto-immune disorders and the only at that time was Sjogren’s Syndrome. They estimated she had it for 10 years. She said they tried every medication, some that caused severe side effects and others did nothing. She said she was not on any medication for it because nothing worked.
