NYC Walk for lupus now

On Sunday, May 18th at Battery Park here in New York, there will be a walk against Lupus.


Unfortunately for many, Lupus is never diagnosed properly, and they lose their lives before a true path toward healing is ever begun.

The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that at least 1.5 million Americans and 5 million people worldwide have a form of lupus. 90% of these are women, and a startling number of these women are African Americans, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans.

Lupus is a significant public health problem that requires action and more public and private research now! The LFA mission is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of lupus, support individuals and families affected by the disease, increase awareness of lupus among health professions and the public, and find the causes and cure, which are still unknown.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 through the Walk for Lupus Now®. This is the first annual walk, and I am very excited about fundraising for this cause. Please know that all the money raised will go towards supporting the 41,000 people in the New York area who have been diagnosed with lupus.

Please help us achieve this goal by making your tax-deductible donation to my team, THE MAMATHANGS! here:

If you are free on that Sunday morning, we'd love to have you walk with us. Join The Mamathangs!


Thanks and All Best,
