Welcome to Team Meagan's Personal Page
Dearest Friends and Family~
On Saturday, June 2, 2018 I will be participating in The Boston Walk With Us To Cure Lupus. Please join me in the quest to find a cure for lupus by making a pledge on my behalf or by registering to walk beside me. Many of you know that this has been a challenging year of life for me. Several of my doctors are convinced that the life threatening blood clots I suffered in Cleveland are closely related to my autoimmune disease (ie lupus). As many of you already know, I am currently taking infusions of a cancer drug to help battle my SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus or more commonly simply known as lupus).
The Lupus Research Alliance’s Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is a national fundraising program that changes lives and brings people together in the common goal to find a cure for lupus. I have been too sick the past two years to participate in the walk, so I am super excited about being well enough to do the walk this year. My parents are (Lord willing!) traveling from Ohio to show their support and be present w/me for this special day.
Lupus is a devastating and cruel autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and there is no known cure.
I choose to walk with Lupus Research Alliance because of its commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. They are an awesome organization! Since 1999 the Lupus Research Alliance has committed over $100-million to lupus research, making it the largest private funder of lupus research in the world.
You can make a donation to my personal fundraising page by clicking on Donate Now or "Make a Gift!"
100% of your donation will go to support lupus research programs, because the Lupus Research Alliance (LRA) Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs. As some you already know, this is rare in the fundraising world that 100 cents of every dollar raised can go directly for the cause itself. Special thanks to LRA for allowing this to happen.
By supporting me in my fundraising efforts, we are ensuring that the Lupus Research Alliance can continue to advance medical research and help the many people living with this disease. This is the only campagin that I will personally be raising funds for this year and asking you for a donation to support.
Thank you kindly for considering giving to this cause that is so near and dear to my heart.
Love and hugs,
