2019 Walk to End Lupus Now New York City

Mother & Son Purple Angeles

In honor of Lebii Walthour, Team Mother & Son Purple Angeles will walk and host fundraisers to support the Lupus Foundation.  Please support our efforts by making a donation, joining the basketball tournament, or walking with us on May 4 at the Seaport District Pier 17.

Lebii had been suffering from Lupus for years and passed away on June 9, 2018. Lupus is a disease where the body attacks healthy tissue and it is a hard battle. He fought this for a long time . Many people didn't know he was suffering because he never let the disease get the best of him. He lived a optimistic life filled with love from his family and friends. He recently went to his senior prom but sadly wasn't able to walk across the stage with his senior class. 

In Lebii's honor, will you 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 and research to find a cure. 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!
