I’m Walking to End Lupus.
19 years old and told I had five years to live. That is a reality check.
Lupus - they think I've had it since I was at least 9 years old.
Lupus - put me in premature labor in the 5th month for both daughters.
Lupus - dropped my platelets to zero and I lost over 2.5 liters of blood and too many antibodies to accept blood.
Lupus - causes me pain every day of my life. I have never known a day without it.
Lupus - gave it to both daughters - diagnosed at ages 11 and 13.
Lupus - there is hope ONLY IF YOU HELP!
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!
