BENEFITING: Lupus Foundation of America, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2011
Not too many people know about all of the side effects of Lupus and its complexity as an autoimmune disease.
Shelley was diagnosed as having Lupus at a young age and continues to battle the ups and downs of having this condition. In spite of it all, she continues to put my needs before her own and always shows up with a smile and an intense energy that exemplifies her love of life and people. She has been an amazing supporter in my life and I am hoping that by continuing to raise awareness (and money) for the Lupus foundation more research will lead to a better understanding of this disease and how to live a long, healthy and fun life with it.
