As you may know, my daughter, Abby, was diagnosed with Lupus a little over a year ago. I often wonder...why did this have to happen to this bright, happy, beautiful person?? This is a question that I won't find an answer to, but I am hoping to help find a cure to this horrible disease.
On October 1st , I will be participating in the Kansas City Walk with Us to Cure Lupus. Join me in the quest to find a cure for lupus by making a pledge on my behalf, or registering to walk beside me.
The Alliance for Lupus Research’s (ALR) Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is a national fundraising program that changes lives and brings people together in the common goal to find a cure for lupus.
Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and there is no known cure.
I choose to walk with ALR because of its commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. Since 1999 the ALR has committed over $100-million to lupus research, making it the largest private funder of lupus research in the world.
You can make a donation to my personal fundraising page by clicking on Donate Now or "Make a Gift!"
100% of your donation will go to support lupus research programs, because the ALR Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.
By supporting me in my fundraising efforts, we are ensuring that the ALR can continue to advance medical research and help the many people living with this disease.
