Today, March 1st marks The Lupus Foundation of America's 13th annual Lupus Advocacy Day and I choose to share my story about how lupus has affected my life in effort to make my voice heard. I might not be able to rally with fellow patients and supporters in Washington, DC but I can still support the cause from a distance.
|This is what "Lupus" looks like|
Once I regained the strength to walk again I vowed to make every step count for myself and every single person living with lupus. For every patient who doesn't have health care, for every patient confined to bed or a wheelchair; restricted by a cane; denied health insurance and disability. I would walk each year for lupus for those who couldn't walk. I would fight to live for myself and for others. I vowed to make every day count, to tell anyone who would listen about lupus.
It's time to make our voices HEARD. If Egypt can do it, then so can we! How can we expect help or a cure if we are not willing to do what we can to make sure this happens?! Help only comes to those who help themselves.
How can you help support Lupus Advocacy? I'll tell you!
Now that you know how to help, get active and make your voice HEARD!
