I am joining thousands of people across the country for the Walk to End Lupus Now®. I don't know if many of you knew that I've had Lupus since I was 29. I came across the Lupus foundation to gain more knowledge and support many others like me. I found out about the walk since 2020 and have been walking ever since every year. I do this for me and my mom, who was also diagnosed with Lupus at the end of 2022.
I hope that you will join me either by lacing up your sneakers or by donating to my fundraising page.
When: October 14, 2023 8:00am -11:00am

You can make a difference by donating to help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus! A generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! Every single dollar counts.
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.
Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
