Lupus Strong is my chant. No throwaway days is the mindset. Entrepreneur, Father, Husband, Student, Professional DJ & Radio Personality, Survivor and Warrior, walking in faith. I have endured many battles with Lupus since being diagnosed. Most recently the fight for my life and surviving Covid 19. After being hospitalized for just under a month which included six days in critical condition, I was released. Lupus Strong is the aftermath of that battle. Lupus Strong is what motivates me to push past any physical limitations. Lupus Strong cements my dedication to thank God everyday. Lupus Strong reminds me of how much I have overcome. Lupus Strong is the manifestation of God's plan for my life. "Too Blessed to be Stressed." So when someone asks me how I am doing, my response is "Lupus Strong."
Make Every Day Count!
On October 16, 2021I am joining thousands of people across the country for the virtual Walk to End Lupus Now®. For the second year in a row the walk will be held coast to coast! I hope that you will join me either by lacing up your sneakers or by donating to my fundraising page.
You can make a difference by donating 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.
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.
Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
Remember after the pandemic ends lupus will still be here. That’s why lupus warriors keep fighting together.
