I’m Walking to End Lupus. Please Support or Join Me?
As most of you know I was diagnosed with Lupus over 35 years ago. I have been a part of the Lupus Foundation since I was diagnosed in New York, and have continuted to support in places like Florida, California and now in North Carolina. The Lupus Foundation provides resources and support groups for those of us with Lupus. They help raise awareness and Funds to help in research to one day (hopefully soon) find a cure for this chronic, debilitating diasease, but we can't do it alone, we need your help.
Please support this years Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now, On October 8, 2022. I will be doing a 3 mile walk in my neighborhood along with hundreds of others to help support the Lupus Foundation.
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 I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in 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 make a donation to 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? A generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact. What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! 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. Thank you for your generosity!
