My Sister Nicole
It all began on thee 8th of May, 2010 at the Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia at 3pm sharp, people from far and wide gathered to show support in all different kinds of ways, but mainly to Walk for Lupus with the Lupus Foundation of America: Georgia Chapter for about 1.5 miles.
A woman woke up, organized her friends and drove several miles out of state to stand strong and walk for a cure that is affecting millions of people all over the world. Lupus; an auto-immune disease so severe that some are completely incapable of moving let alone walking without excruciating pain. That woman is my SISTER.
As I looked through the amazing photos they captured that day, it was almost impossible not to get emotional. People of all ages, big, tall, large and small all came together to support loved ones. Stories were swapped & new friends were made.
