I lost my older sister to LUPUS in 2001. I remember the exact time of the onset of her symptoms of fatigue, that attacked her and left her bed-ridden for an entire weekend when I was still in high school in 1983. I have been always willing to make a stance to support the cause in her memory. I've donated to the organization before, but this will be my very first walk for the cause. VERY EXCITED.

This is so important to me because i am living with lupus and have for over 6 years now but in this time as well so much more is going wrong. i am 44 with 3 great daughters and a great son in- law and 1 15 month grandson that gives me my power not to give up. i have or it seems i lost so much because of lupus from myself, friends. family, and it seems like ppl dont understand fully just what we live with. so if we could find the perfect pill or better care then we can maybe be back to a...

This is so important to me because i am living with lupus and have for over 6 years now but in this time as well so much more is going wrong. i am 44 with 3 great daughters and a great son in- law and 1 15 month grandson that gives me my power not to give up. i have or it seems i lost so much because of lupus from myself, friends. family, and it seems like ppl dont understand fully just what we live with. so if we could find the perfect pill or better care then we can maybe be back to a half way or a quarter of what we were. i know we try to stay positive as we have no choice but i find myself wanting to take a walk in my woods and just keep walking and never look back until i cant walk no more. lupus alone is hard then you add all the other issue that come up as well as i myself am doing as the yrs go on. but i KNOW i have to find something to do to help the next group of people that end up with this illness not live the life i am living. . bless you all.

The cause is dear to me as my family autoimmune disease that has affected almost every member of my family with Lupus affecting three members. One of these is my precious daughter who had symptoms beginning at age 16 and diagnosed with SLE at 17. It is not just a physically devastating disease but the difficulties go way beyond this. It is so difficult because the disease is not physically apparent all the time and people have no idea the suffering it causes. The attitude of many people who...

The cause is dear to me as my family autoimmune disease that has affected almost every member of my family with Lupus affecting three members. One of these is my precious daughter who had symptoms beginning at age 16 and diagnosed with SLE at 17. It is not just a physically devastating disease but the difficulties go way beyond this. It is so difficult because the disease is not physically apparent all the time and people have no idea the suffering it causes. The attitude of many people who operate under the premise that if it is not apparent at the time it does not exist and so making it so difficult for the patient and the family members all to deal with it. So in addition to the physically devastating problems and damage from the disease the inability of friends and family to understand and deal with it make it increaseingly difficult emtionally as well. It is a very lonely disease and my heart goes out to all Lupus patients -it takes a tower of strength to deal with this too. My daughter has fought a major battle with this from the time she should have been enjoying her teen years on up to now. We really need to fight a major battle to bring awareness to more of the public. It has become more so in recent years as more patients have become more public, especially high profile patients but the disease still remains such a mystery and education regarding what we do know and promoting research in every way possible needs to be promoted in every way posssible. Imagine having to deal with the pain, the breathing problems, the joint issues, kidney issues , neurological issues and seeing the blank espressions when you try to explain what is happening because of the mystery and lack of knowledge of the disease. Please, those of you who can walk, please do so and try to recruit so we can began to bring this forward.
