Join the Fight Against Lupus
Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus strives to change the way the medical community, those impacted by lupus, and the general public understand the disease, its diagnosis and its treatment. Lupus is a debilitating disease affecting approximately 1.5 million Americans. Despite its prevalence, lupus is rarely understood and under researched. It can affect any part of the body, resulting in pain, inflammation, and systemic damage. There remains no cure for lupus, and it is estimated that 10-15% of those diagnosed will die prematurely due to complications from the disease.
Molly’s Fund offers lupus patients educational resources and support groups. We give lupus sufferers the opportunity to learn from and share with others who face the same struggles. Through our lupus awareness building projects, lupus patients feel better understood, as we show the community how to recognize symptoms of the disease. We also connect lupus sufferers with services to address their medical and overall wellness needs through our patient advocacy program.
When you buy on CaféGive with a Molly’s Fund widget, you are helping to increase awareness about this disease, and support those who suffer from it. Your earnings will help us create new education initiatives and fund the lupus patient services which are so desperately needed. Together, we will create a better future for lupus sufferers everywhere. Thank you for your support!
“At the age of 27, I was on my way to becoming a successful opera singer. One morning I woke up and passed out with a fever of 104° and seven different infections. It took over 14 doctors before I was finally diagnosed with lupus. I had no idea what lupus was, all I knew was there was no cure and that my life had changed forever. Because of lupus, my dreams of becoming an opera singer were stolen from me and I no longer knew what to do with myself. Lupus stole not only my health, but my purpose in life. I will not let it control me. I will fight this disease with everything in me and I will win.”
