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.
Your help is needed to solve the mystery, find a cure, and better medicines.. Of course, I am soliciting your help once again for the 2023 Walk to End Lupus Now drive. My request this year is that you share my story on your page and ask at least 2 people to match your donation or give what they desire to give. Also, ask those 2 people to ask 2 people to donate.
Because of your help in the years that I have participated in the Walk to End Lupus Now I was invited to participate in the Lupus Research Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC April 23-25, 2023. This was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. It reminded me that there is still a lot of work to be done to make Lupus visible. I was able to hear some amazing stories of survival and strength from so many living with Lupus. We have Lupus but Lupus does not have us. We are Lupus Warriors, and we will continue to be courageous, hopeful, strong and faithful.
