We are here for you…..


You are not alone. Many patients who experience Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) are told that they will never meet another person who has experienced their reaction. In 1995 Jean McCawley founded the Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation after her daughter was striken by SJS.  Jean created the foundation to assure that no one needs to face SJS on their own.

For the past 18 years we have provided information and support to thousands of SJS patients, their families and loved ones.  Those that call us when the disease first strikes are often confused about what is happening and are seeking information. Others just want to talk with someone who understands the difficult experience that is SJS.

This website contains information about SJS for patients as well as information for medical professionals. We have included a list of regional support groups with contact information. If you are looking for additional information or would like to speak with someone at the foundation, please give us a call at (303) 635-1241.

The Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation (Julie Foundation for allergic drug reactions) is a non-profit organization. The purpose of the foundation is to provide the public and medical communities with information on adverse allergic drug reactions.

Our goal is to make the public aware of adverse reactions, so that a quick diagnosis may be made and the offending drug stopped as soon as possible.
