I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
Hi! My name is Richelle. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2006. The day I learned I had this disease changed my life forever. My health hasn't been the best and I almost died of complication from my Lupus back in 2014. I still have my good and bad days, but I try not to complain or be a bother to anyone. I now take several medications and receive infusions every 4 weeks at Emory in Atlanta. I don't say this to get your sympathy, I want to raise awareness so we can help people better understand this disease. To raise funds to find a cure!! Please help me by supprting me in my fight. Any amount helps and it' tax deductible. Thank you and God Bless!
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 [city] to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you make a donation to help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? A generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact. What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! 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. Thank you for your generosity!
