Hi all! I am Katie, the captain of the Lupus Fiasco fundraising team and we need your help!
Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It is described as a silent killer because it strikes without warning and can affect any part of the body in numerous ways that we still don’t understand. It’s often looked over as something not as serious or a complete misdiagnosis. Not only does it affect your physical health, but it also affects your mental health and every aspect of your life. There is no cure for Lupus at the moment. Dedicated doctors have been working to understand Lupus but there is still much more that we don’t know about this life altering disease. Living with lupus is like watching a scary movie. You want to relax but you can’t help feeling on edge because you’re just anticipating something unexpected to pop up in your face and ruin your whole plan of wanting to watch this movie. I am very dedicated to do anything I can to help raise funds for more research to be done and hopefully, one day, a cure! So, I am joining thousands of people across the country for the Walk to End Lupus Now®. And I hope that you, your family and your friends will all help me fight this silent beast of a disease and donate to this necessary cause!
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. One of the most common symptoms is hand joint pain. So, donate for those who are trying to donate but are unable to hold anything, to write, or type at the moment due to chronic pain caused by Lupus.
