I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
Imagine a day when doctors can say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until that day though, there is work to be done. That’s why I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in Orlando to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
When I was FINALLY diagnosed with Systemic Lupus, I was fortunate enough to begin the correct treatment and find the SUPPORT from the very foundation I now sit proudly on as a Board Member. We strive to help both new and experienced patients as they navigate the ever changing world of this devasting, life changing, and sometimes, life-threatening disease. We offer support, resources, links to clinical trials, and research!
Can you please make a donation to support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? Every single dollar counts. If your employer has a Gift Matching program, that would double the impact...it never hurts to ask.
Did you know?
- Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
- Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
- While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk.
- Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.
Together, we HOPE to solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Ivy's Warriors thanks you for your generosity!
