It's that time of year again! For the third year in a row, I am trying to raise $1,000 for the Lupus Foundation of America. To those that have supported me previously, thank you and I hope you consider donating again! I truly appreciate it and am excited to reach my goal this year!
Over the last two years working at the LFA I've had the honor of meeting so many lupus warriors. Their resilliance, strength and spirit have truly touched me and drive me to not only work hard every day, but do my part in fundraising for better treatments and a cure.
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 2020 DC Walk to End Lupus Now on May 9th.
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!
