I am Walking to End Lupus, come join me!
Team Name: Get in the Loop for Lupus
Team Captain: Sandra E. Alsman
Living with this disease has definitely changed my life, sometimes this disease can get me down!
So here I'am wanting to do my share and hope you can join and contribute. I hope we can find a cure in the near future so no one else has to go through this.
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(tm) in Irvine 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 what ever you can contribute can make a definite impact. Trust me, it's worth the effort! Every single dollar counts.

* 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 (like mine) 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
