Hi Y'all,

Thanks for checking out our team page! 2018 is our 7th LUPUS Walk.

Velvet manna Victors, through hard work and dedication, has raised over $43,000 in the past 6 years and have remained in the Top 10 Fundraising Teams for the Lupus Foundation of America TAMPA. 

We are incredibly proud of our efforts, however, we cannot do this without your help. Will you be so kind to help us reach our $2,500 fundraising goal in 2018? You’ll be supporting LFA's efforts for education and awareness, research for new tests and drugs, and research for a cure.

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 take action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End LUPUS Now - TAMPA 2018 to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of LUPUS. Join our team today and support our efforts!

Thanks & blessings for making a difference in lives with lupus!

Yvonne DeChambre Markiewicz, Ret. E.M.T. for M.C.E.M.S.

Did you know?

  • Lupus is a cruel, 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, Benlysta, has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat LUPUS.
