Dedra L. Johnson (February 22, 1985 - January 23, 2021)
Dedra suffered from a rare form of Lupus for over 18 years before God called her home. She is remembered by her son, Dylan Johnson, mother and father, sister and brother, and a ton of family and friends.
Dedra was a strong supporter of the Lupus Foundation of America, and a regular participant of the Atlanta Walk to End Lupus. Please join me in supporting the loving memory of Dedra and everything she stood for, including love, advocacy, and generosity. Don't forget to wear your purple!! Rest in Power, sweet Friend!

I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
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. If you donate more than $75, you will receive a free Team Dedra t-shirt with a listing of her donors on the back!! 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.
- Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
