Lupus Walk In Los Angeles September 2010

I have very mixed feelings about "lupus walk" fundraisers because I see patients who shouldn't be in the sun, who are very weak, or who are otherwise not suited to participate, force themselves to do something which harms them just because it is one of the few opportunities to raise money for this underfunded cause.

But if people who can safely walk would do so (or maybe someone would do so FOR us?) then the walks do certainly help raise awareness of lupus as well as badly needed funds.

About Me

My photo
I've travelled the distance from an Ivy League college to decades of enforced poverty--because I've needed to qualify for government health care in the U.S., since being diagnosed with lupus at the age of 23. I have a personal blog at http://beepbeep.livejournal.com that I've had so long I'm probably stuck with :) My other blogs are here on blogger...
