Thank you for visiting my personal walk page! I am looking forward to another walk this year! Please read below on how you can make a difference in the 2020 Walk to End Lupus Now!
Why I walk...The "JKS" of Walk4JKS stands for Jacqueline Kelly Scarbeau, my mother. After a long hard battle with Lupus, our family lost this amazing woman on May 21, 2014. I walk in remembrance and honor of her. I walk to support other dear friends in my life and those that I don't know that battle this disease. I walk to raise awareness and money to hopefully someday allow for a cure.
How YOU can help and make a difference in this years walk! There are several ways you can help me reach my team goal of $2000.
1. You can pray! Pray for those struggling with this disease. Pray for their families.
2. You can join my team and walk with me on November 21st, 2020 (walk post-poned to the fall due to COVID-19)! Click the button on the right hand side to join my team! Check out this link for walk day details: http://chapters.lupus.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=1995

In any capacity that you choose to help I am honored and thank you! Your support means more to me than you know!
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!
