You Make Change Happen!
On Saturday, May 5th, I will be participating in the Baltimore 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.
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.
As many of you know I have personally been effected by Lupus. It’s a scary disease that many do not know about or understand its severity. While many diseases or illnesses portray some sort of sign that people are aware of, Lupus is a little different. Lupus is a disease that attacks your auto immune system causing chronic pain and fatigue on the inside while looking healthy on the outside. It 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. Having the right treatment and a strong support system are both things I’ve been extremely fortunate to have, however there are many living with the disease that are not as fortunate.
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. I had the opportunity to talk with the director of this charity and their goals and aspirations to help the Lupus community through education, support, treatment, and finding a cure are very inspirational.
