Everyday I am amazed by the mundane things we take for granted. Walking, speaking, regulating our temperature, restful sleep, and not having headaches. Unfortunately these are challenging tasks for those warriors living with Lupus that they deal with daily. Lupus is hard to diagnose, but we as an organization are working to make life easier and more comfortable for everyone affected by Lupus.
This year more than ever, LFA needs our help and support. The global pandemic has taken away many of our life events; birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, vacations, sports and so much more! LFA will still be holding it's Walk to End Lupus Now on 10.10.20, just on a virtual platform to ensure everyones health and safety. For the first time ever the walk will be held coast to coast! This will be their first ever nationwide Walk to End Lupus Now!
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.
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.
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.
