I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
I am walking on behalf of one of my best friends who lost her battle with Lupus, 5 years ago. Leesa was one of the most positive, up beat, full of life women, I had the honor of knowing and calling my friend! You would never know she even suffered from lupus, because she kept such a positive out take on life! To be honest I was unaware of lupus and the horrible affects it has on people suffering with it! For that reason, I dedicate myself each year to raising awareness, funds & honoring the memory of a wonderful friend and human being, Leesa "Sunshine" Sengaphone! #ripleesa #fightlupus #fiftyshadesofawesome
With your help & donations we can make a difference! Please join me to find a cure!!!
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!
