Thank you for visiting my Autoimmune Walk personal fundraising page!
I am excited to be supporting AARDA through the Autoimmune Walk. More than 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases. That's 1 out of every 5 people in the United States! The Autoimmune Walk is one of AARDA's efforts to bring together families impacted by autoimmune disease to raise much-needed funding and awareness -- because together we can accomplish far more than any of us can on our own.
In 2003 I was diagnosed with APLS. A severe Blood clotting disorder that causes clots, DVT's , Miscarriages and pulmonary Embolisms. With many autoimmune diseases, one leads to others. I have since been diagnosed with Sjorens Disease and Inflammatory Arthritis similar to Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I am walking because this disease is hereditary. I want a cure to be found so that others will one day be able to control or be cured from it. So many babies are lost to miscarriages caused by APLS because the mothers are not aware they have it.There is still so much to learn and so many people who need to become aware of it.
Please register to walk with me OR make a donation to help me reach my goal!
When we link together, we are stronger! When we link together, a cure is closer!
