Organized by: Jessica James
Hi my name is Jessica and I have lupus. It is a very painful and depressing disease. But one of the things that make you feel depressed the most is it affects the way that you look. My hair is nearly bald right now and its making me want to not do anything. I couldn't do that much before because of all the pain that I go through on a daily basis. But with my hair all gone it makes me not want to leave the house. So I was thinking that I cant let my disease take over my life. The time I have left I would like to spend it helping others out. Helping people with lupus and other diseases to feel better about themselves. I want to do that by making wigs and giving makeovers, counseling, a 4 day vacation and also helping with medical expenses and other needs, to people that deserve them the most. Cause I know if I had someone to do something like this for me I would have less to be depressed about. I mean lupus can be painful but me not loving myself anymore is the most painful thing of all. So if your reading this and can find it in your heart to donate any amount even if its just a penny or two, anything can help. I just want people that are sick to feel better about themselves again. And I feel like this could help out alot. It might not cure us but it will make us a little stronger and make us love ourselves again. I just want to create a way for people, that have giving up on life and everything else, to gain just a little hope.
