WALK TO END LUPUS NOW
EL PASO LUPUS WALK -3rd Year - SEPTEMBER 14, 2019
Hello Family and Friends,
Let me start by saying "LUPUS SUCKS". As many of you know, I am a lupus warrior and have been fighting for my life since I was 17. Some days, I'm so tired of fighting and tired from fighting this crazy disease but I will never give up. I rest when I need to, then I get up and start fighting again. I am a fighter.
What is Lupus?
Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system mistakes the healthy tissues and cells as foreign invaders and attacks them. It mostly affects the kidneys, lungs, skin, brain, joints, mouth and heart but can attack any part of the body.
This year I've added a Nephrologist to the long list of my medical team because lupus has affected my kidneys. I am now being treated with chemotherapy and a host of medication. I now take 13 to 15 pills daily. People say "you look good" or "you don't look sick" but inside there is an autoimmune war going on. Most people could not imagine what me and other lupus suffers go through on a daily basis.
When you support me and The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA), you are joining the fight to help make a difference in the lives of over 1.5 million patients. If you are in the El Paso area on September 14, 2019, I would love for you to join my team "Judy's Gems" and walk with us. If you're not able to join us, any size donation will make a big difference in finding a cure for this mysterious and cruel disease and will be greatly appreciated.
