Shakin' Lakins

Welcome to the Shakin' Lakins fundraising team page.  After a three year hiatus, I have finally gotten organized enough again to put together one of these pages and start harassing my friends and families to support a cause that's obviously very near and dear to me. So that means the Shakin' Lakins are back in business to help raise money to find new treatments and help patients and their families find the information and support they need to navigate the day-to-day realities of living with lupus. So thank you for visiting my team page, and I hope that you'll consider supporting this cause. For more info, you can read the pre-written prompt the folks at the Lupus Foundation of America put together:

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 we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in [city] to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. 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. Join our team today and support our efforts!
