I am Walking to End Lupus. Join Me ?
Stacey's Story :
I am lupus warrior living with discoid and systemic lupus. I work my hardest to live a life of normacy. My immune system is constantly being attacked by my body. The diease can be disabling at times and worst deadly. Each day is another opportunity for me to bring awareness to the disease by sharing with friends and family.
Just imagine being told you have lupus and there is no cure. I remember when I was told I had lupus I cried, than I remember thinking, God does not make mistakes. My sadness quickly became my motivation. I ask you to join me in the finding a cure for this awful diesease.
Please remember your act of kindness will make a difference in our lives and the lives of others.
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 can make a definite impact. I look forward to each of you joining me in the walk on April 25, 2020 at Piedmont Park. 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!
