I’m Walking to End Lupus, Join me!
What a shock to be told "You have lupus, and there's no cure for it," and now having to sift through the emotions of what now. As my mind wondered of the possible highs and lows that this journey would lead me on, I prayed for strength to endure it all. Although some days are tougher than others, I am so blessed that The Most High God has given me an enormous support system of amazing family and friends. I have always been an advocate and educator for all, and I would love for you to join my team as I participate in the Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ on Saturday May 9, 2020. My team name is 'Enlighten The Fight,' and I'm ready!
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? My goal is to raise $1000 and any contribution can make a definite impact, because 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!
