In May, my wife Cindy was diagnosed with lupus. This comes from a strong family history, as her mom and aunt also have this debilitating disease. I’m finding out now that some in our church struggle with lupus as well. While there is no cure as of yet, I don’t want to sit around and do nothing. It’s time for some gospel-centered action!

On Saturday, August 29, I will be participating in this year’s Walk for Lupus Now® in Lexington to benefit the Lupus Foundation of America, Mid-South Chapter. I am writing to ask you to join my team.

We hope to raise $25,000 this year allowing the LFAM to provide education  and support services to people living with lupus, and support much needed lupus research. Lupus is an acute and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. It affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans and approximately 24,000 people in Kentucky.

We are going to have a great time at the Lexington Walk, and I hope you’ll be there with me.  It’s easy – just click on the link below and you’ll be taken to my team page, where you can easily register to become a member.  If you’re unable to join, please consider making a donation.

Making a difference starts with one step. Thank you for taking this step!
