2022 Walk to End Lupus Now, Seattle

MG2 Against Lupus

Hello from your team captain, Yanie!

Thank you for joining me in this fight against lupus! 

My first connection with lupus was through volunteering with the Lupus Foundation of America for my high school senior project. It hit me that I was in the top percentage of affected people and I had only heard about it through my own research. Recently it has hit a more personal note as my sister has been diagnosed.

Facts about Lupus:

  • Lupus 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! Go team :)
