2021 Walk to End Lupus Now, Tampa

WellMed Cares

Welcome to our WellMed Cares team page.



We are Walking to End Lupus. Join Us on October 16th for a Virtual Walk?

2021has been a year of new beginnings, even if in a small way.  As the world rushes back to "normal", many lupus patients feel left behind.  Despite the existence of COVID vaccines, we remain in the shadows due to our high risk; more isolated than our disease typically demands.  For many of us, the support, education, and community received from the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) throughout the pandemic and now has been vital.  Like most other charities, the LFA faces significant difficulties as a result of COVID.  We hope that you will join me and participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's VIRTUAL Walk to End Lupus Now

 

We realize that the events of this year has negatively impacted us all, a donation of ANY amount would be greatly appreciated,

 

 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.  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.
  • Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus and those of us battling with it can start to step out of the shadows. Thank you for your support and generosity!
