One day the mystery will be solved!! Please help me by either joining my team or helping to reach my goal...
Receiving a diagnosis of Lupus for me was like a double edged sword. On one side there was relief because I had finally found the culprit of the many symptoms that had been plaguing my body for years.The other side placed me on an emotional roller coaster and left me with many unanswered questions. Since then I have been on a journey of continuous research, healthier eating and physical fitness.
Reaching a cure for every disease known to man would be a miraculous feat!! However until then research is the key component in the fight ... This is where you can take a huge part!! Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in Charlotte 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? Any donations will help, however 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 selfless act of giving!!!
