Trailblazing to end Lupus. Will you Join Team Kyla?
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. Our immune system is designed to fight off viruses, bacteria and germs. The immune system of Lupus patients, however, can not tell the difference between the harmful invaders and healthy tissues and therefore is attacking itself. This causes inflammation, pain and damage to various parts of the body.
As you may or may not know, I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2013. With Prayer, medication and treatment I've been able to minimize the many flare ups it produces as well as the onset of other potential life threatening health conditions. Since diagnosis, I've joined the fight to spread Lupus Awareness and would like your support. I am participating in the 2021 Walk To End Lupus Now to raise awareness, money for Lupus research, and to rally public support.
This year I’ve set a goal to become a Trailblazer by raising $1,000.00. Please consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal and or joining TEAM KYLA in the walk to show your support. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated. Join me as I participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now(tm) in Chicago virtually on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
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.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
