Over the past 6+ years since joining the staff of the Indiana Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America, I've met so many wonderful people impacted by this horrible disease. One of these wonderful people was Letha Southern. Our Chapter was saddened in June to lose this beautiful soul who passed away due to complications of lupus.
As a staff member, I work during the event so I'm not able to walk with the hundreds of people who will be joining us on Sat., Oct. 12th, but raising funds to support the people with lupus in Indiana is near and dear to my heart. In honor of Letha and all the people in Indiana fighting this disease, I would greatly appreciate your support as I participate in the Walk to End Lupus Now.
Any donation is sincerely appreciated, and if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Every single dollar counts so it’s worth the effort!
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.
