2020 Walk to End Lupus Now, DFW

Team Carissa

Welcome to our fundraising team page #TeamCarissa

After enduring months and months of unexplained fevers, rashes, loss of weight, a seizure, joint pain that led to limited mobility, I was diagnosed with Systematic Lupus Erythematosus. I have since been through numerous hospital stays, biopsies of my skin and kidneys, and blood drawn so many times I've lost count, & hair loss. A few months later I would learn Lupus has now affected my kidneys, also known as Lupus Nehpritis. My teeth deteriorated causing major dental work to be done and my list of medications has been so much to keep up with. But I'm a fighter as are all of us Lupus Warriors. I believe with all my heart that with continued research there will one day be a cure for us. With your support and the work through The Lupus Foundation of America we are making that happen. NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE. Our team will be ready to take on more than a walk, but a purpose and to make our voices known and heard.
Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Until that day though, there is work to be done. That's why we are taking action in the fight against lupus. 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.

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. Every single dollar counts!

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!
