DimoStrong is a 501(c)3 organization established in 2015 to raise awareness and help families fighting autoimmune disease. Our name is inspired by Anthony “Dimo” Dimiceli who lost his battle with autoimmune disease in 2015 at the age of twenty-three. Dimo fought the disease for five years and never received a diagnosis. He showed amazing strength and was inspiring to everyone who knew him. Experiencing his battle first-hand and the difficulties with diagnosis and treatment compelled us to form DimoStrong in an effort to help others who are affected by the disease.
