Welcome to Rowan's Page!!!
HI!! My name is Rowan Simmons and this is my Lupus Army page. On May 18, 2019 I will walk to help find a cure for Lupus. I am a Lupus Warrior for my mom, who lives with Lupus.
Join me and walk with Rowan’s Lupus Army! I am going to raise $5,000 this year with your help! Why do I want to raise money? Well, there is an autoimmune disease that affects my mom called Lupus. Lupus has no cure and the Lupus Foundation of America is trying to fix that. Not only am I going raise all this money this year, but you and me are going to be part of the biggest team at the walk in 2019!
Let me tell you about me and my mom. First, my mom does everything for my little brother and I. She is a true warrior even thought there are days that she cannot get out of bed. Even on days where it would be easier to stay in bed, she gets up and she does everything she can to make sure that we are taken care of. I want to be a Lupus Warrior for my mom the fighter. I pray that one day there is a cure for my mom and everyone else with Lupus!
So mark your calendar and join my Army and let’s get the biggest team of walkers ever! But if you really cannot walk with me, consider a donation. All of the money raised goes towards finding treatments, education of others, advocacy for those living with Lupus and most importantly searching for a cure for Lupus.

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. 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!
