I've always heard about Lupus, but never knew much about it. To be honest it didn’t affect me...it was just Lupus until it hit home for me. Home is my sister...not my blood sister, but my sister God blessed me with. I’m not a Lupus expert, but now I’m aware. I understand the fatigue, tired days, body aches etc. I see my sister push through to be present for work, events and other things. Now that I’m aware, Lupus won’t ever just be Lupus to me anymore. It’s a fight for me as well. I will walk, volunteer, donate and support as much as I can, for as long as I can. Please support by donating and help me reach my goal for my sister of $1000 whatever you can . $1 or $100 it all helps. Hit the link.
I am 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.
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!
