Nelson and I are walking to find a cure for lupus-join us!
I have the privilege of supporting the efforts of LFA volunteers all across the county as a Manager for the Walk to End Lupus Now.
This year, there have been two new drugs approved by the FDA to treat lupus. Exiting progress but there is still work to be done to fund research.. While many new drugs are in trials, many current medications are still very toxic with debilitating side effects.
I'm so proud to take part in this fundraiser to help support research, advocacy and direct services for patients and their families.
Thank you in advance.
Nelson and I are grateful.
A special note from one of my dear friends Wendy Smith who is passionate about so many causes. Wendy, I'm grateful for your support and encouragement! Wendy writes this beautiful note with her gift:
"This means more than ever to me this year as a dear friend's sister battles for her life from a cancer that disproportionately affects those with lupus. Thank you for your work to end this scourge Joan and for giving us this opportunity to help. We can all make a difference by giving what we can". Love, Wendy and Todd.
