Hi everyone!

My family lost our Aunt to Lupus on September 22, 2010. Ever since I can remember I've been trying to raise awareness for this disease. I've been fortunate enough to be a part of the planning committee for the Portland Walk for Lupus Now event put on by the Lupus Foundation of America!! We would love to see all of you there!!

It will be September 15th at Oaks Park in Portland.

Registration is $25 but if you are a member of the LFA, you can register for free!!

You will get a t-shirt as well Smile

As some of you might know, the LFA hasn't had a walk in Portland for a couple years so we're bringing it back!! Spread the word, get your families involved, and meet some others that struggle with this disease!

Here is the link to register:

Hope you can make it Smile

Brianna....Welcome to this fantastic support site. I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your aunt to this terrible disease. So wonderful to hear that they are doing a walk for Lupus in Portland.....I should let my cousin know as he lives in Portland and my niece lives in Vancouver, Washington so will have to let her know. Were having a walk a thon in San Francisco in September....not sure if I will be able to attend that. I wish you all the best.

National, girl, we are international! The website is based out of Israel, and I've met folks from Australia, Africa and beyond. Smile
