I hope all is well with you.
2022 is our 6th year participating in Walk to End Lupus Now in San Francisco. It has been two years since we have done an in person Walk at Golden Gate park in San Francisco. This year we will be back in person at the park. Let’s meet at the park!
During the past events, it was really great to meet other families united to Fight Lupus. I get to know more and more people that are diagnosed with Lupus.
Joining the Walk made me realize that we are not alone with this challenge. Like what they say, there is strength in numbers
When they called everyone on the stage who are affected with lupus, it made me cry to see so how many women, mostly women of color are on the stage. And seeing Mariel on the stage is very heartbreaking.
My daughter, Mariel, was just diagnosed with Lupus in November 2016. Prior to this, I don't know anything about this disease. There is no cure for lupus (for now).
As a mom, it was tough to see my daughter suffer with this disease. My world has changed. Not that just me but our whole family.
God has been good to Mariel. And so I am not only doing this for my daughter but also for others who are also suffering from this disease.
Can you partner with us to find the cure for lupus?

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.
* Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
