I’m Walking to End Lupus. Join Me?
I have been working with the lupus foundation since January 2020 and during the midst of the pandemic in 2021, it was hard to get used to the idea of having to do things virtually..
People were struggling, some patients were getting lost in the shuffle of teledoc visits and we lost a lot of people.
In 2022 we were able to get together and have "our" walk in the park and it was amazing to see so many butterflies in one place again.
In 2023.... we did some big things, spreading more awareness in places that didn't know they needed to be reached . We let MORE PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE.
2024 more and more people are being diagnosed with lupus and we need them to know that we are STILL here for them
Can YOU help me spread the word AND provide extra assistance to the people who need it???
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.
- Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
