I am joining thousands of people across the country for the Walk to End Lupus Now®. I hope that you will join me either by lacing up your sneakers or by donating to my fundraising page.
You can make a difference by donating 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.
Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
8 incredible years of Linda’s Legacy. This is an emotional one. I’m not sure what it is, or maybe it’s just a combo of everything I’ve felt all these years. It’s been ten years without my sweet mama, without my best friend. I finished all of the 50 states, and turned 30. The older I grow, and the more I find myself, the farther away from you I feel. The realization that I have to experience all of these events and memories without you forever, has been more real than ever. I miss not knowing you as an adult, I miss not getting to be your friend.
To YEAR EIGHT, the walk will be back in person finally and we are celebrating a life well loved. In advance, I appreciate all of the sweet words, the hands to hold, the shoulders to lean on, and the donations that are changing family’s lives. We WILL see a day without lupus.
