I received this e-mail today:
"Congratulations for the wonderful job you did at raising funds in second annual Walk for Lupus Now in Los Angeles! Our records indicate that you raised more than $1,000"
Yah! I thought I was short, but according to Walk for Lupus Now LA, I wasn't. Yah!!! We'll see how much we can do next year. Our final total as a team was: $4832.00. We'll beat $5G next year...you better believe it! Oh, and a side note, I saw a worker at one of my labs that had a purple bracelet. I asked him if it was a Lupus band. Apparently his daughter has it (teenager) and has for about 6 years? I'm grateful for my own awareness about the disease and keep meeting more and more people who have it or know someone who has it. Hopefully with all our efforts we can help researchers find a cure :) Thanks again for all your support and donations!
