Angela Barmby Greenberg: 2008 ALR Quest for a Cure Award
One of my closest friends, Ginger Launey DeSalvo, lost her battle with lupus in 2003. We had seen each other through so many things – college, marriage, kids – and then I supported her through her battle with lupus.
I carry my mission to fund lupus research with me wherever I go. I've learned that when I share Ginger's story and tell about the millions of others who are affected by lupus, people are moved to help. I encourage others to tell your lupus stories wherever you go to motivate the people you know to get involved in the search for a cure.
