Dear Friends,

Today I am writing to you as the Team Captain of “The Wolfepack” for the Boston Walk with Us to Cure Lupus Walkathon.

Lupus is a life-threatening autoimmune disease. There is no cure and no one knows the cause. It is estimated that 1 million American have lupus. Lupus is when your immune system begins to falsely attack your healthy body tissue causing damage and inflammation. Lupus is more common than leukemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy combined. Yet, it receives less than $21 per patient in research funding by the federal government compared to the mean average of $10,000 per patient.
