Last year I decided to raise money to help support Lupus research and awareness. My mom was diagnosed in the mid 1980s and wanted to support her any way I can. I was able to raise some funds, however the event, the NYC marathon did not occur due to the devastation from hurricane Sandy. This year I am at it again and my reasons for raising money and awareness have become two fold. I was diagnosed with Lupus in January 2013 and it has been a rough road from being out of work, to trips to MGH in Boston, to the complete and utter exhaustion and soreness that has caused me to take a backseat in my own life. I quickly realized that I am not a backseat type of person and I am determined to push through the pain, tiredness and run and run far- the NYC marathon in 2013.
Lupus has no known cause and or cure. Please take time to make a donation to a great cause that is near and dear to me and help those that suffer with Lupus.
