For the past five years, JB’s Sweetpeas has been an avid participant in the Walk to End Lupus Now! Commemorating the lupus warriors that we have lost, and celebrating those who continue their fight. My team is dedicated to bringing awareness to this mysterious disease, while simultaneously raising funds to find a cure. We walk for our friends, our family, and the 1.5 million people living with the disease today. We walk in memory of our aunt and lupus warrior, Varner Dickerson, and my team continues to keep fighting/walking with our very own lupus warrior (and my mother), Jackie Brown, who has been living with lupus for the past 28 years.
Each year our team has grown, spreading awareness of this autoimmune disease and raising money to find a cure. My team has become a force to be reckoned with--and a growing family of warriors and supporters! I ask that you join us in support of the Lupus Foundation of America to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. 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.
A generous contribution would certainly make a difference and would help us reach our goal! Any donation would be much appreciated as every single dollar counts. I also ask that if you cannot make a donation today, to please share information about this disease to your friends and loved ones. Since lupus is a "quiet" autoimmune disease, it can be hard to determine who's suffering in silence. I want all surviors and warriors to know that JB’s Sweetpeas is here to fight for and with them!
