Welcome to My Personal Page
I'm taking part in the 5th Annual Walk to End Lupus Now® Virtual Walk on 10/10/20. Join us and discover the power you have to help end lupus!
I will be walking on behalf of myself and others that suffer from Lupus. Lupus, like other autoimmune diseases, results from the immune system malfunctioning and attacking healthy tissues in the body instead. These attacks on the body's healthy tissue may cause permanent damage over time. During uncontrolled acute or chronic lupus activity, organs may be damaged, most commonly those in the cardiovascular, neuropsychiatric, renal, and musculoskeletal systems.
Lupus is an unpredictable and misunderstood disease in which the immune system is out of balance, causing damage to any organ system in the body. In my case, many of you know, my heart was affected and kidneys are on a constant watch. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and while lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90 percent of the 1.5 million Americans living with the disease are females. The 5th Annual Walk to End Lupus Now Central PA is an important community event because it raises critical funds to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy. My personal goal is to raise $500.00. Will you help me in reaching my goal? Every little bit helps. You can click on the Chapter Home link above to find more information on lupus and how you can help us solve the cruel mystery.
Together, we are making an impact today to fulfill the needs of people affected by lupus, while creating a better future for them and future generations.
