As many of you know my personal battle with Lupus started in 2005. We didn't actually know what I had until the summer of 2006 and at that point my look on Life changed. I live for each day as I do not know when my next flare will arise. I have learned to be strong and fight this head on. I prayed when Leilani was just born that our girls would know who their momma was and that they would see a fighter when they think of me after I pass. I have made it a lot longer than one of my doctors thought I would, which is only by the Grace of God. My Lupus has attacked all but two organs in my body at this point in time but I will not let it win. My prayer now is that the Lupus Foundation of America will find a medication to better control the progression of damage that Lupus causes. Thank you very much for the consideration of a donation. I am doing this event to help bring awareness that Lupus is a very serious disease. I pray that a cure will be found to help our children from having to live with Lupus in the future.
