2020 Central Florida Walk to End Lupus Now

Jenifer2019

We lost our daughter to lupus. She was 29 and lupus kept her hopes and dreams just out of her reach. Jenifer went into the hospital ICU on October 13, 2019. For 58 days she fought. She had 4 strokes, a couple of bleeds, kidney failure and lung problems associated with Catastrophic Antiphospholipid syndrome. If you knew her, you would have known she loved life, her family and friends. All her dreams were taken from her on December 10, 2019 when she lost her fight with lupus. No one should have to go through what she did.

Welcome to our fundraising team page.

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 we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in [city] to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. Every single dollar counts!

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 can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join our team today and support our efforts!
