I am Racing to End lupus!
For my mom. As long as I can remember, my mom has never felt good. There were definitely worse days than others, but she spends a lot of time in agony few can imagine. Lupus is a terrible disease that medicine and doctors know so little about. It can effect nearly everything in the body. From your joints to your skin to major internal organs, it attacks anything and everything.
My mom is the kindest person I've ever known. Lupus in many ways has limited her physical capacity but nothing has been able to limit the kindness of her spirit. Please join me in helping find a cure for this disease. Let's help fight for Fraya.
Join me and support the mission of the Lupus Foundation of America! My goal is to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Your donation will 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!
