Join me and Team Lady to support the mission of the Lupus Foundation of America!
My goal is to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Your donation will 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!
Lupus, unfortunately, has left a permanent scar on myself, my family, and our close friends. Our journey, like many others affected by lupus, was rocky, isolating, and terrifying. But we had a beacon of light on our side, my mom, my Lady. Her strength, her confidence, and her laughter kept our family together and most importantly kept her spirits high. The odds were against her many times, but because of her persistence she continued on to share her love, her compassion, and her never-ending knowledge with everyone who had the pleasure of meeting her.
In honor of my mom, I've formed Team Lady to keep her fight going. To educate others on what lupus is, provide resources for those affected by it, and fight to bring an end to it. Together we can find a cure.
Did You Know?
- Lupus is a complex disease that is hard to define. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
- While lupus mainly affects women between the ages of 15-44, men and children are not spared.
- 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.
- Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat lupus. Access to this drug was also put at risk by the coronavirus pandemic.
By making a donation today you are joining the fight against lupus, for Team Lady!
