I'm sitting in bed as I write. This is lupus; I got a little bit of sun coming through the car window the other day and a "lupus flare" started: malaise, achy joints, up until 3:00 A.M. and then sleeping 14 hours the next day, no energy to do anything. This is Lupus. My family is not surprised because they know when it is a "Loopie Day". Lupus is an overative immune system that attacks my good cells. It can attack every part of the body, brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, joints and skin. Some days I have trouble walking and have labored breathing. What's most disturbing to me is all the children and young people suffering from this awful disease and the many parents and loved ones who feel helpless in the physical and mental challenges that their loved one suffers. I share this with you only because we need your help now!
The joyous news I share is that I have seen how much lupus awareness has grown and with that comes funding for research and moving towards a world without lupus. I started participating in the Lupus Foundation of Northern California 5K after I had a successful year with Benlysta inusions. I also have become a board member for the LFNC. My team, Roberta's Hope For Research, will be participating again on June 12, 2016 and we need your continued support. We raised over $4300.00 last year because of the $10, $25, $50, $100 pledges we received. Please continue to make a difference to end Lupus now and to help the LFNC continue to provide services in Northern California, from Sacramento to Fresno.
