Welcome to Team Ricky's fundraising page!
Imagine a day when doctors can say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until that day though, there is work to be done. Let's help those who have been diagnosed with Lupus and their families find a cure. That’s why I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in Orange County to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you make a donation to Team Ricky and support the Lupus Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? Those of you that know Ricky and my family know what this disease is capable of and what it does to a family when a love one has a flare up or has lupus complications. This disease is a mystery - we don't know why our loved ones get it and the most heart breaking and frustrating part of it all is that there is no cure! Your generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact.
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. Thank you for your generosity!
