Etc. it was hard going school everyday and I started working to while I going though treatment. Finally after 5 years I was in remission ( that means no sides of Lupus it calm for now ) Later in years I was much older I started hurting all over I was having mini flare up again I was in pain and being tired all time. And being unable to do things I want to do everyday because I weak and all I wanted to do was sleep and not move so I decide to make difference and I wanted to be part of Walk end Lupus in Boston to find Cure because living with Lupus sucks and I don't let it stop me from doing stuff That I want to do but it would nice to be without being in pain or being tired so thank you for support to

I'm Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
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(R) 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!
