With no Health Insurance we hope to raise money to help pay for prescriptions, treatments, surgeries & other medical costs.

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body, including skin, any organ, Skin and blood. It is an often debilitating disease that lowers your value of life. My body sees my own cells as invaders that must be destroyed. So my body is, in essence, attacking itself. I have now been diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis.
In 2008 I was diagnosed Rheumatoid Arthritis, which has lessened my ability to be as mobile as I'd like to as it causes quite a bit of pain.
Currently I do not have insurance (I get denied) and I need to see a Neurologist, Nephrologist, Internist and Rheumatlogist. I imagine the Dr visits, tests and treatments won't come cheap. And I'm asking you help me have a future with a normal quality of life.

Our mantra with Lupus is just to have hope. "Hope for a cure, Hope for a future." I am 31, married the love of my life 1 year ago and I want to get well and spend as much of my life with him as possible! If you can help, we would appreciate it more than you know! Thank you!

Here is some more information on living with Lupus for those of you who might not know a lot about it. http://www.lupus.org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/templates/new_learnaffects.aspx?articleid=2268&zoneid=526
