May is Lupus Awareness month and there were several events to make people aware of Lupus and how it affects those who live with it. It is more important than ever for us to come together and rally our communities to raise awareness and funds to support those affected.
This year started out with many challenges, but I am doing well. I would like to thank you all again for your support last year. Your generosity helped millions who will benefit from the research your dollars will afford to be done. Also, I was able to achieve my personal goal to help with the drive. The money is also used to help take steps to make changes in the legislature to make Lupus research a priority.
Your help is needed in helping to solve the mystery and find a cure and better medicines. Of course, I am soliciting your help once again for the 2021 Walk to End Lupus Now drive. My request this year is that you will ask at least 2 people to match your donation. If they are unable to match what you give, that they will give any amount that is comfortable for them.
You can make a donation in several ways, you can:
1. Donate through Facebook.
2. Send a check/money order payable to Lupus Foundation to Rosemary Jackson, 10007 Fawn Grove Place, Tampa FL 33637 and I will mail all of my donations in together.
3. Send to my PayPay: paypalme/RosemaryJackson or my cashapp: $SororRose and I will mail the donation in to the foundation.
4. Use this link: https://support.lupus.org/site/TR/WTELN/General?px=1399079&pg=personal&fr_id=1617
If you have any questions, call me at 813.300.8046. Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of Lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
