I'M WALKING TO END LUPUS. JOIN ME?
I believe the impossible for myself, I receive it! I wait with bated breathe for my doctors to say, "Monique,your prayers have been answered there is a cure for lupus!" My often daunting, unpredictable, and crucial days with lupus can make this sound far fetched. But I ask you, does it have to be?
Just this March I was honored to be named National Lupus Advocate of the Year! (I’m still amazed) So trust me,I truly believe I have a lot more living to do. This is exactly why my team,my brand,my lifestyle is that of a LemonadeMaker...life will hand lemons, we have to choose to make it profitable,make lemonade . That's why I'm personally 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 NYC 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 $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 generosity, your prayers, and your support!
