I was diagnosed, and have been living with lupus for over 16 years. So I have had a first-hand experience of the unpredictability and cruelty of this disease.
After my diagnosis with Lupus I became very passionate about helping to find a cure for this horrible disease. Over the years I have been to the Georgia state capital to advocate for more funding and better laws supporting Lupus patients. I have also been an enthusiastic fundraiser for the lupus foundation of America (Georgia + Florida Chapter) in particular as part of the yearly Lupus Walk since 2011.

I will once again be joining thousands of people across the country for the Walk to End Lupus Now®. I hope that you will join me either by lacing up your sneakers or by donating to my fundraising page or both.
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. Or give what you can. Every single dollar counts.
What is 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.
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!
We are BUTTERFLY WARRIORS!
Let's do it for the CURE!
