It was two years ago when I wrote this post disclosing that I have lupus and giving a brief description of what it was. Fast forward to 2015 and I still have lupus and like so many like myself, hoping to get a little closer to a cure. Many advancements are being made, due heavily in part to advocates like myself. I raise awareness using my platform (this blog) and by helping to raise funds for the Atlanta, GA chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America. Most of the money stays in Georgia and goes towards research funding Emory Hospital, the official hospital if lupus research and to the local community in the form of workshops that will educate people about this disease.
I have formed a team, D.I.V.A.S. for Lupus, and my goal is to raise $1000 . To date, I have $870 to go. I ask you please find it in your heart to donate. The site is secure and you will receive your tax receipt at the end of the process. For more information, I have left some links for your research below.
