Love Notes For Lupus

Leave your message for someone you appreciate. They can be a lupus warrior who inspires you, one who is gone but not forgotten, or a supportive person in your life who helps make your lupus journey a little easier. Read a few notes below!

For my children & husband

...for always being a source of support. They are understanding of my disease and are always there for me when I need them. Even the simple things are taken for granted. And having them has allowed me to cope with the many challenges many lupus warriors face. It is because of them I have been able to continue working in some capacity. That means a lot to me. – Sylvia R.

For my health care providers

Thank you to my healthcare providers, Dr. David Petros, Dr. Amber Kaldas, Dr. Rolando Vega, and Dr. Matthias Simon who all had a hand in maintaining my health, held my hand for reassurance during medical trials and tribulations, and allowing me to feel seen and heard. With great gratitude, Bethany A.

One day at a time

One day at a time. – Sally R.

For my wife

I’m honoring my wife today not only on this day but every day. I’m always thankful for having her in my life. After she got hit with Covid it made her Lupus unbearable to live with. She spent 10 days in the hospital and one month recovering at her brother’s home. She lost all her hair and dropped tremendous amount of weight. I thank God every day that she is still here with us. I love you! – Richard M.

For my mother and my husband

My mother lost her battle with Lupus and now I'm fighting my own lupus battle. My precious husband and love of my life supports me every step of the way and I couldn't make it w/o him! – Pam W.

For Andrew

I'm honoring Andrew because he fights lupus everyday no matter how tough it gets. He is still handsome to me. – Karen B.

For my daughter LaQuintia

I’m honoring my daughter LaQuintia who passed away 6 years ago from Lupus. LaQuintia left behind a son who 2 at the time she passed away. Harlem is now 8 and he has been a true blessing to my life since my daughter's passing. There is not a day that goes by I don’t think of her. Every time I hear her favorite song I get joy in my heart. When I see butterflies around me I know it’s her spirit coming to visit me. – Vanessa A.

For my mom

To my mother who has been there for me. Whether it's having to go with me to my out of to my appts. or making sure I had something to eat. And for always ending our talk or visits in " I love you and God Bless you". Those words always lift me up. Thank you MOM for always being there for me. – Monica V.

For my mom and daughter

To my mom who fought the brave fight and began dancing with the angels in 2017, there’s not a day that goes. Y that you aren’t on my mind. To my daughter Bethany who fight the battle each day, I am In awe and inspired by the mother, teacher, and daughter you are. I love You with every ounce of me and will continue to advocate and fight right beside you until we find a cure. ❤️ – Sylvia C.
