I am making my mark on lupus!
My husband was diagnosed with Lupus in 2014. Since even before then, this horrible, misunderstood disease has been slowly taking bits and pieces of him away. Very few doctors even understand Lupus, and usually treat its symptoms rather than try to find its cause. But there are scientists working toward a cure. They have too much work and not enough money to pay for their ideas. Please help me raise some funds for these scientists to help my husband and those who are like him to have some hope of someday waking up without pain. Give them hope toward taking pieces of their lives back. Give me my husband back.
Join me and support the mission of the Lupus Foundation of America! My goal is to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Your donation will help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus!
