I have Lupus, but it DOESN'T have me. 22 years and still fighting the fight!
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, I will be participating in the Los Angeles Area Walk with Us to Cure Lupus. Join me in the quest to find a cure for lupus by making a pledge on my behalf, or registering to walk beside me
As many of you know I was diagnosed with Lupus 22 years ago and have been in and out of hospitals all my life. 8 years ago Lupus started attacking my kidneys and I had to have a kidney transplant. Luckily my husband was a match and he donated his kidney to me on August 4, 2010. This year’s walk is super special to me because it will be the first year that our new baby boy LiL Ant will be joining us. It will be his first time out there with me, his mommy, and I plan to have him out there every year going forward. I want him to grow up to learn to fight through anything and everything life throws at him and I want him to see all the strong men and woman that are out there walking for themselves, for family members or for friends that are suffering with Lupus.
Thank you to all my family and friends that have been there to support me through it all. Without the support of all of you, Lupus would’ve won a long time ago. Love you all!!
Lupus is a devastating 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. 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 Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.
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.
My Walker ID Number is CAL-620121
