Why do I walk for Lupus? I walk because it has impacted me personally. My mother lost her battle with the disease in 2007 and a brother that passed away earlier this year that had the disease also. I have friends and coworkers that fight the horrible symptoms that this disease has on a daily basis.
Will you help me raise funds to find a cure for this disease?
Did you know this about Lupus?
- 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!
