2023 Dallas/Fort Worth Walk to End Lupus Now

Francisco's Fighters

Welcome to Francisco’s Fighters team page.

Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Never did I imagine that I would long to hear those words in hopes that I, as well as all my fellow Lupus Warriors, would one day not have to deal with the struggles of living with 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 Farmers Branch 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? If you live in the area, I would greatly appreciate if you walked side by side with me and the rest of Francisco's Fighters. If you are out of state, or unable to attend, I would great appreciate if you would walk the 5K with us at your local trail, neighborhood, or even on a treadmill or bike within the comfort of your own home on April 15th at 9 am CST.

Thank you for supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus.

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!
