2017 Walk to End Lupus Now, Orlando

Yaz

Welcome to my fundraising team page.

Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Until that day though, there is work to be done. That's why we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in Orlando to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

  • Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
  • While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk. 
  • Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the diseas

 My story 

I was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 15, I've had ups and downs with lupus and I hope to help spread awareness for this horrible disease and make a difference in my life time in the efforts in finding the cure for lupus. I struggle with the disease everyday,making it difficult to function as well as I would like. However there are those who are not as lucky as I am, and are not able to hold a job or go to school like I do. 

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join my team today and support our efforts! Last year we were able to raise more than $10000! Let's make this year even better, every little bit counts. Let's live in a world with no lupus.
