I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
I have been fighting the same fight for 19 years and it's a fight I'm determined to win. I know one day there will be a cure for lupus despite what has been said of it being incurable. Living with lupus has not been a walk in the park, but it has been my story for so long. It has made a forever imprint on the person I am now and who I will be later in life. I have come a long way since first diagnosed in 2001 and that is all thanks to the donations you all make in order to provide assistance in more groundbreaking research.
No donation is too big or too small!!! If able, I would appreciate you're helping in reaching my $2,000 goal for this years Lupus Walk 2020. Below are a few facts about lupus for your knowledge.
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.

- 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!
