Over the last year working at the Lupus Foundation of America I've had the honor of meeting so many lupus warriors. Although the journey with this devestating disease is different for each person, each one holds an inspiring hope for their future.
I'm excited to be a part of helping to solve the mystery of lupus every day. And, I'm especially excited to particpate in the 2019 DC Walk to End Lupus Now on May 11th.
Will you make a donation to help me reach my personal fundraising goal? Your donation will help support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. A generous contribution of $5, $10, $25 or even $50 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!
