I'm walking in honor of our best friend, Leesa, who lost her battle to lupus 3 years ago.
Leesa always Lived, Laughed and Loved affecting those around her in such a positive way that you would only want to do the same. She is missed dearly by many.
I've made it my personal goal to raise $1000 or more to help towards finding a cure. Please help me to reach my goal by donating today. Your donation will help raise awareness so that people kNOw lupus!
I'm walking in memory of Our Sunshine Leesa, others that have lost their battle to this horrible disease and for those still fighting the battle. Help make a difference, donate today!!!!
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 Atlanta 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 but any amount will help! 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!
