All right friends and family. Put your money where your mouth is. Between now and July 31st I would LOVE to raise $250 towards research for See more
Lupus is a sneaky little disease. When I was first diagnosed hardly anyone had heard about it and just kind nodded there head in kindness when I talked about it. Although I have had some rough times, I consider myself very lucky. In the decades before, many people died undiagnosed. Once they were able to diagnose lupus , patient were still given little hope for survival. Now, it is extremely possible to manage and live a full life while having lupus - not lupus having you. That is what I want for everyone who has lupus to experience. It does take time to find the right doctor, the right mix of medications, the right life style - and for some, unfortunately, I realize that will never come and I am sorry. But with the money we can raise hopefully research can be done to find a way to benefit those whose problems are so involved. They have come so far in such a relatively short time - let's not give up now. So get out you balloons, a couple of bucks, pick a buddy and start tossing. It's the perfect temperature!!! Thanks everyone - I appreciate you reading my story!
