What IS a Spinning Noodle?
It's lupus patient Shakira's interpretation of the "crazy" gesture. (Twirling one's finger beside the ear.) Despite living with a chronic rheumatoid disease, Shakira enjoys her life as much as anyone; she makes it look easy.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease, meaning the immune system will fight not only bad bacteria and viruses, but healthy tissues and organs as well.
Our Spinning Noodle's symptoms so far:
- Hair loss
- Joint pain in the toes, ankles, knees, wrists, and fingers
- Muscle Soreness
- A red rash across the cheeks
We're fundraising to relieve Shakira of this disease, as it can affect different organs (i.e. Kidneys, liver, heart, brain...etc.) at different times in life.
We're fundraising to cure all other patients, especially those whom have more fatal symptoms.
It is said that everyone will eventually know someone with lupus. By donating, you're helping to save lives, and for that we appreciate every dollar donated.
