Please consider joining my team in the annual Walk to End Lupus Now, taking place in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania!
It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans and 40,000 individuals in the Philadelphia Tri-State region have lupus. Lupus is an acute and chronic autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. It is complex, and no two cases of lupus are the same. Only one drug was developed specifically for lupus in the past 50 years, and we need your support to continue this momentum. There is hope on the horizon, and with your help, we can find additional better treatments and a cure for lupus.
The Lupus Foundation of America is the foremost national nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus and providing support, services, and hope to all people affected by lupus. Thank you in advance for helping me AND the Lupus Foundation of America, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter! I know we'll all feel good about supporting this important cause!
