One of the most frustrating things about having lupus is that it’s been so long since new medicines or treatments have come out. It’s hard to feel hopeful if you don’t see developments on the horizon.
It makes me feel good, knowing my donations aren’t getting lost in administrative costs. I’m investing directly in the research that will one day make things better for me and others with lupus. I also like knowing I’m helping to spread the word about lupus, which gets far less attention than a lot of other diseases.
My family helped organize the first Baltimore Walk With Us to Cure Lupus three years ago, and we’ve been involved ever since. We’re expecting over 100 walkers this year on Team Garceau – go team!
I’m very grateful for the unbelievable support of my family and for the Alliance for Lupus Research. Together we will find a cure for lupus!
