Carrie Pataky's Fundraiser:

Cariangel's "RAISES" for Life Without Lupus

THE STORY:

If you did not know this about me, I am surviving Systemic Lupus every day. Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs. Under normal function, the immune system makes proteins called antibodies in order to protect and fight against antigens such as viruses and bacteria. Lupus makes the immune system unable to differentiate between antigens and healthy tissue. This leads the immune system to direct antibodies against the healthy tissue - not just antigens - causing swelling, pain, and tissue damage. Although Lupus is not considered a terminal illness, it is fatal.

I am 45 years old. At the age of 15, I presented specific symptoms of Lupus, however, because Lupus was not easily diagnosable back then, I personally was not diagnosed until I was 21. 30 years later, there is still no cure.

May is Lupus Awareness Month. There is nothing that I would love more than to raise money for the S.L.E. Lupus foundation in hopes a cure is found. This fundraising is very personal to me. Please help me reach my goal. <3
