Lupus Blows Theresa Knows

Lupus Blows, Theresa Knows!

It's year #4 in Phoenix & we’re dubbing it “The Push to 100K!”  For the past 22 years, Theresa has been living with lupus. From 2007-2014, team Lupus Blows, Theresa Knows participated in the Naperville Lupus Walk in Chicago's western suburbs, raising more than $64,000 to benefit the Lupus Society of Illinois, and exceeding $10,000 raised for 4 consecutive years.  After taking a year off to relocate to Arizona, LBTK has been back at it the last 3 years, successfully raising more than $8,000 each year, helping to raise awareness & funds for the Lupus Foundation of America.  We set a new team record in 2018, raising more than $11,300, meaning we are just $7,566 away from hitting $100,000 raised toward lupus reserach and programs/services that beneift patients like Theresa.  The 2019 Arizona walk is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th at Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix (it'll be indoors & in the AC!).  We appreciate everyone's support over the years & hope that you'll get behind the Phoenix version of Lupus Blows, Theresa Knows!  We would love for you to be able to walk with us on 9/14, but if you're not able, any size donation is greatly appreciated!

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!
