Well, I have decided to participate in the 2014 Lupus walk in Naples, Florida. I have always created a team for the Down Syndrome walk every year and have participated in many other walks in support of people that I love and care for. Never have I walked for myself…
Many may think that it’s a piece of cake, when in fact I am finding it harder to write this email this time around. Although all of you are aware that I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2011 and I am not shy to share my story, it is much different doing so in such a big public forum. It in fact puts a face to a chronic disease, but like anything else… I will do it with SASS! 🙂
At 28 I have been through a journey most would never see from looking at my face. I have seen the dark side of an illness that does not discriminate. I fight back daily, but I have decided to fight back in public now! Join me in walking for MY cause…. Join me in walking to find a cure for Lupus.
You can donate or join my team… or even cheer from the sidelines… Your support in any way possible is appreciated! Thank you for supporting me in my journey and the Lupus Foundation of America – Southeast Florida Chapter. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
