Join The Fight, Join The Team #Lupus

  It's that time of year again. The time when all you beautiful people reach down, and donate millions of dollars to Lupus. Millions as in 3 thousand. That's the team goal for this year, Last year we reached the goal, and more. So let's set the bar and then jump over it. Kinda like T-Mac when he played for the Magic. Right? Right? Okay, more like Micheal Jordan, doing anything. Let's break some goals.

In all seriousness. As some of you know, both my brothers have Lupus. Lupus is:

Systemic lupus erythematosus Listeni, often abbreviated as SLE or lupus, is a systemic autoimmune disease (or autoimmune connective tissue disease) in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks normal, healthy tissue. This can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. And can result in symptoms, such as inflammation and swelling. When the immune system is functioning normally, it makes proteins called antibodies that protect and fight against antigens, like viruses and bacteria. Lupus causes the immune system to be unable to differentiate antigens and healthy tissue. As a result, the immune system directs antibodies against healthy tissue, which causes swelling, pain, and tissue damage. Although the underlying cause of autoimmune diseases is unknown, most doctors believe that lupus results from both genetic and environmental stimuli.

As of right now they're doing pretty good. Taking lots of pills. I swear they rooms looks like they sell drugs. So many empty bottles. Jokes heal the soul, laugh everybody.

Here's how you can help and join the fight. Each year, we walk and raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America. As stated above our team goal is 3,000 dollars. If you would like to donate, follow the link here.  I'm trying to raise the most money for the team. So let's do it. Again the link is right here. Also if you live in Atlanta and or would travel to Atlanta, join the team. Jeem& JJ's (Ghadir, Jae, Princess) is coming, you should too. Link to join the team is the same one stated above.
