Why I Walk: Lora Edwards-Jackson
I went through a very trying time after being diagnosed with Discoid Lupus. I lost my hair and at times could barely walk, so I decided to inform myself about the disease. And then to make sure others are aware and informed about Lupus, I became quite an E-Advocate and Activist for LFA. Yet there was still more I felt I needed to do. I decided to be a part of the first ever Walk to End Lupus Now in Jacksonville, Florida and I was honored.to be accompanied by 30 registered walkers --"Lo's Leopard Butterflies". Along side others just like us, we helped to raise awareness and funds for greater things like research/medicine/and support to keep more walks like this active. We were gracious to be among the Top 10 groups of walkers. So if I am to ask myself: WHY I WALK TO END LUPUS NOW? It's because of me and others like me! ?
