Dear Brotherhood of the Wolf,
This fall, the Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter will be taking Walk to End Lupus Now virtual on October 16, 2021! Even though 90%of people living with lupus are female, men are more likely to suffer more severe conditions such as organ involvement. I think that a majority of the reasons why men have more severe conditions is because doctors overlook the fact that men have the disease. If men continue to remain silent about their own struggles with lupus, doctors will continue to keep of out of research, organizations will continue to focus on the women, and we will continue to suffer.
Here is an opportunity for you to help raise awareness about men living with lupus. The Brotherhood of the Wolf, the very first support group for men living with lupus, wants to make sure that you raise funds for lupus research. I happen to know that the money raised at the Walk to End Lupus contributes to research efforts and 90% remains in the state sponsoring the event. On October 16, 2021, 60 walks will take place around the country to raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of America. Make sure you are part of this even by raising funds for research.
The funds raised also go to support education efforts, services, financial assistance, and resources provided by chapters around the country.
I’m supporting the Walk to End Lupus Now™ virtual celebration by forming a fundraising team! This cause is important to me, because the
members of the Brotherhood of the Wolf, including you, have been impacted by lupus.

Men with Lupus Need Your Help!!!
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!
