Did you know that my Aunt Bonnie Died of Lupus?
Did you know that my grandfather was the founder of The American Lupus Society? Back in 1969 My aunt Bonnie was diagnosed with Lupus. They say she probably had it all of her life. 1 year after her diagnosis she passed away.
Being the trailblazer that he was my Grandfather started TALS in hopes that there would be an outlet for the patients, mostly women and to bring awarenes for this mysterious disease. My grandfather poured almost 20 years into TALS but unfortunately his fight for the disease was cut short when he passed away in 1984. About a decade later TALS merged with The Lupus Foundation.
I will walk on behalf of my Aunt Bonnie. I will walk on behalf of my Grandmother Barney. I will walk for my Grandfater Martin Mike Denn. I will raise money for The Lupus Foundation. But more than that I will bring awareness to my community of the needs of the patients, because that is what my Grandfather would want!
I have set a low goal for myself and any donation you make will be grately appreciated. Thank you in advance for helping me reach my personal fundraising goal and for your support towards the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus?
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
All the best,
Bonnie Denn Orona
