Cindy Wolf

THE STORY:

When I was diagnosed with Lupus more than 10 years ago, I had so many questions (and of course fears) about how it this incurable disease would impact my life. Since that time, I have worked closely with my doctors to monitor my Lupus, and manage the risks and challenges that are a part of this disease. Some days might be harder than others, but I could not be more grateful to have such a full and active life, family and career.

There are many out there with Lupus who are not as fortunate as I am. This autoimmune disease is as different as 5 million people who are impacted by it. The symptoms of Lupus are unpredictable; they vary from person to person, and even from day to day.

As I move into my second decade with Lupus, I would like to help the cause by spreading awareness, helping to raise important funds for research, and helping others who are struggling with the many questions that this disease leaves you with.

When I started running more than 7 years ago, I noticed that running instantly helped boost my impaired immune system, helped me manage stress, and gave me the energy that I needed to keep my life full. Again, I count myself lucky because I realize that not everyone with Lupus (and other auto-immune diseases) has the ability to run. But I do hope that others who can will begin to do so. Because running has been so great for my health and happiness, I keep a sign over my desk that says “Every day is a good day when you run."  It reminds me to push myself, even on the days when I don't feel like I can.

As is often the case, Lupus is one of two auto-immune diseases that I have. I also have friends and family with a range of auto-immune diseases (I am sure you do too). The increased incidence of auto-immune diseases in the population is alarming to me. Research is more important than ever.

If you wish to donate in any amount, it is greatly appreciated. But please no pressure. I know we are all asked for donations often. Whether you donate or not, you can always help by INCREASING AWARENESS. Please try to spend a few minutes online learning about Lupus: http://www.lupus.org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/templates/new_newsroom.aspx?articleid=351&zoneid=8

Thank you so much for your support!
