On April 30, 2011, I’m joining my best friend in the Walk for Lupus.
He’s walking for his mom and I’m walking to support him and his family. Together, we can raise the essential funds for research, education, and support services needed for the estimated 1.5 million Americans that are affected by a form of lupus: 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.
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.
