I walk because I’ve seen the debilitating effects of Lupus! I walk because I have a nine-year-old grandson who is beautiful and talented! I walk because my youngest daughter died as a result of complications of Lupus and neurological issues, seizures and heart failure! I walk because I don’t want to see another male or female die from something like this! I walk to make a difference and to make awareness within four communities that affect more black and brown people and it’s not given enough attention! Will you walk with us?
