Walk For Lupus Now 2009

There are more than 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with Lupus. I will be walking in this year’s Walk for Lupus Now event. I am creating a team to help me reach a donation goal for the Lupus Foundation of America, Indiana Chapter. We will be raising money for research and education. We are raising life changing dollars for Lupus research and education.

Lupus is a chronic, potentially life threatening autoimmune disease that can cause damage to virtually any organ in the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and kidneys.
In my case, I experience extreme fatigue, mouth ulcers, hair loss, eye inflammation, joint pain, swelling in my legs and ankles, anemia, sun and light sensitivity, and depression/anxiety. Fortunately, my lupus has avoided major organs like my kidneys or lungs, but that could change at any time. I do struggle everyday because of the symptoms of lupus, but I definitely try to have a positive outlook. Its hard for some friends and family to believe that I experience all of these things because I "don't look sick". Now I've realized that I need to put my personal struggle with lupus out there for everyone to know. I hope you all will walk with me in September (it's FREE). Please don't feel pressured to donate especially in the tough economic times we now face, but do know that for every dollar you donate, we're that much closer to a new treatment or cure for lupus!
Thank you for your support. And please forward this to anyone else who might be interested.

Walk for Lupus Now of Central Indiana is a half-day of fun, food, and friendship with activities for the whole family! Walkers can stroll through Central Park’s beautiful flat greenway (1- 3 miles).

My First Senior Portrait Session!

I met my friend Christina and her daughter Kate
at the IMA (Indianapolis Museum of Art).
My beautiful subject was so easy to work with and
the setting was fabulous of course!
Here are a few samples of what we did yesterday.
