Dear Friends and Family,
This will be our 9th Annual Lupus Walk and we are SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED to start our fundraising efforts!
The Hyle Family walks in honor of our dear friend "Leesa Sengaphone" who lost her fight with Lupus on Feb 1, 2013. She brought sunshine to our family for many years. She never let this disease control her life and lived every moment with strength, grace and carried the sunshine spirit everywhere she went. Her motto was "Live, Laugh, Love" and she did this until the very end.
First, I woud like to take the time to give a huge "THANK YOU" to our t-shirt sponsers who continuous donate $200+ yearly to have their logo on our walking tshirts...whooop whoop!!
We also have our own matte lipgloss line called "Fifty Shades" sold online at Christina Victoria Cosmetics.

I plan to spend the rest of my life spreading awareness about this awful disease and very thankful to everyone who helps make a difference to all the SURVIVING Lupus Warriors.
I am asking for your help to support our Team "FIFTY SHADES OF AWESOME" in donating as little as ONE DAY OF YOUR LUNCH SPENDINGS or more to help bring awareness to ATLANTA, GA. We cannot achieve this without your help. TEAM WORK MAKE DREAMS WORK!!!
While lupus can effect 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. Lets make a difference one day at a time!
