Walk To End Lupus Now, Kansas City 2019

Team Autumn

Welcome to our fundraising team page.

Autumn was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis her senior year of high school in 2005. A year after being diagnosed she was in remission through most of her college years. Her lupus didn’t flare up again until 2011. Since then it’s affected her neurological system as well. She has random seizures which overall has drastically changed her daily routines. Sometimes making it difficult to hold a job due to the rollercoaster of health issues. I have good days and bad days. God and close friends and family have definitely helped carry her through.

Join us as we participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in Shawnee to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

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. Join our team today and support our efforts!
