Dear Family & Friends:

I will be participating in this year's Walk for Lupus Now® to benefit the Lupus Foundation of America. Walk for Lupus Now is the signature event of the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. In more than 75 cities across America, thousands of people walk to make a difference in the lives of those affected by lupus and to raise essential funds for research, education, and support services. I am writing to ask you for your support and help me reach my fundraising goal.

It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus. Lupus is an acute and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. November 2008 marked 50 years since a drug has been approved for the treatment of lupus. There is hope on the horizon, and with your help we can find better treatments and a cure for lupus.

The Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. (LFA) 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. The LFA and its nationwide network of nearly 300 chapters, branches, and support groups conduct programs of research, education, and advocacy.

You can help me reach my goal by making a secure online donation. Just click on the link below and you will be taken to my personal donation page.

Making a difference starts with one step. Thank you for taking this step!
