I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
Hiiiii Family and Friends,
As most of you know I was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis in 2015. This diagnosis has been been a little rough on me in a few different ways. Upon diagnosis, I was put on a heavy amount of steroids which made me very upset with my body and a lot of things driving me to drop out of school so I could get my health in order. Since then, I’ve had a couple physical health set backs but have remained in remission for over two years which is excellent. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to forgive my body for attacking itself and setting me back. Upon completion of my Associates Degree and acceptance into my Bachelors program I’ve realized it’s time to stop blaming things I can’t control and continue to do my best with the hand dealt to me because I’m doing just fine.
While my specific lupus has been mild compared to so many others I’d love to support this cause and the people effected by this disease who may not be as lucky as me. Also, finding a cure gives me hope that the inevitable kidney disease that will manifest in my body later can fuck off.
I’d appreciate ANY type of support you can give, I’D LOVE TO HAVE YOU WALKING WITH ME but a donation is much appreciated as well.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my little note and I hope to see you out there!
I love you guys!
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® 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? A generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact. What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! Every single dollar counts.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
