I'm Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
As many of you know, I've been battling lupus for many years now. I try to participate in everything I can to help make a difference. Someone once told me, don't sit back and do nothing. Go out and make a difference. So that is why I am doing the Walk for the fourth year. I am also an advocate for the Lupus Foundation of America.
Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus." Until that day though, there is 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(R) to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you please 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? Any contribution can make a big difference. Trust me, it's worth the effort! Every single dollar counts. Every single dollar is greatly appreciated by me as well as all those battling lupus.
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. Thank you for your generosity!
