Myra's Purple Soles

This is not about a walk. It's about a LEGACY.

Through Myra's family and friends, we share her story to create awareness of this "mystery disease". Not long after her passing, both Myra's sisters and niece were diagnosed with Lupus. It's become a lifelong passion of the family to support the Lupus Foundation of America. Myra's Purple Soles, was created 6 years ago to not only raise funds for a cure but to spread the love and legacy of Myra Martinez.

We are hopeful for a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Until that day though, there is work to be done. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in [city] 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!
