I wish I were in a position to sponsor the walk now, but times are rough. A number of years ago, I did a story on auto-immune diseases. It is troubling how many there are, how many people's lives they impact and how little is known about their causes. To add to the difficulty of living with the symptoms, it often take a long time to get an accurate diagnosis. My mother had Polymyositis and was lucky that after a year of high does prednisone, it went into remission. My sister has "non-specific auto-immune disease" meaning they can't figure out exactly what it is. I applaud anything you do to draw attention to Lupus. I am sure you must be familiar with it, but AARDA can be a good source of information.
