I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
Dear Friends and Family,
I’m participating in the Lupus Foundation of America, Lone Star Chapter's Walk to End Lupus Now™, Central Texas Lupus Support Group in my community. This event is important to me for a few reasons. I have been fighting daily for over 20 years, the past seven as a Support Group Facilitator, by spreading awareness, educating my community and because it raises critical funds to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy.
Lupus is an unpredictable and misunderstood disease in which the immune system is out of balance, causing damage to any organ system in the body. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and while lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90 percent of the 1.5 million Americans living with the disease are females.
The Lupus Foundation of America, Lone Star Chapter is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most devastating diseases. We envision a life free of lupus. That is why I’m coming to you now, to ask for your support. Will you make a tax-deductible donation to support my fundraising efforts? Your gift today can make a definite impact and help me to get closer to my fundraising goal.
What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees you may be able to double your contribution. To learn more about matching gifts, click here.
Thank you for your generosity,
