I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
Imagine one day you wake up and you can’t walk? You can’t close your hand into a fist. Pain so bad you can’t get out of bed! This is exactly how I felt one day! Only 27 years old at the time and 4 amazing children! What to do? What now?
Living with this pain and suffering for 3 years and now 1 year diagnosed. It’s been a rough year BUT I’m figuring it out slowly!
Now Imagine a day when doctors can say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until that day though, there is LOTS of work to be done.
That’s why I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now® to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you make a donation 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? People just like ME!!! A generous contribution of any amount can make a definite impact.
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! #TeamLupedTogether
