The Faces of Lupus

Angela Barmby Greenberg: 2008 ALR Quest for a Cure Award

Angela Greenberg, Barbara Boyts, Robert Wood Johnson IVOne 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.

Ginger was absolutely convinced that the cure for lupus was just over the horizon. That's why I'm so committed to raising money for the research that will find that cure.

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.
