I am a Lupus Warrior! I have battled this devastating disease for 28 years of my life and I refuse to let Lupus win. My body has been abused by Lupus from painful skin sores, renal issues, weight gain and visual changes to name a few ways I have been affected.
I walk to raise funds to find a cure for Lupus. I want to spare other young women and men the physical and mental pain of this disease; I need your HELP! I am hosting a fundraiser. "Ladies Night for Lupus" at the St. Louis Boxing Gym. This event will be a 45 minute kick-boxing workout followed by information sharing about Lupus with light refreshments, and a raffle for attendees!! Donate a minimum of $25 to attend the event.

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. Thank you for your generosity!
