Morning everyone ... I think Spring has FINALLY arrived. Today and this weekend, it's supposed to go to high 70s and maybe hit 80 degrees. That makes me very happy. Walking around downtown DC during lunch yesterday was so very nice. No jacket required. I think we're all hoping the cold weather is gone for the year.
Lots to share with you today, so let me jump in.
Walk for Lupus Now
As I have mentioned before, it's now Walk season here at the LFA. Monies raised from Walk for Lupus Now Walks will support lupus research, lupus education programs, and patient and family support services. Here is a listing of upcoming Walks, taking place in April / May 2008.
Washington, DC -- Saturday, April 19, 2008 (I will be there this weekend! If you're in the metro-DC area, I hope you can come join me!)
Again, if there is no Walk near you, you can still help the LFA by setting up your own fund-raising page and participating in your own walk. For example, you could walk your local mall, hiking path or community park.
Upcoming May 2008 Webchat -- Being Newly Diagnosed with Lupus
The first of 2 May 2008 Webchats will take place Wednesday, May 14 at 3 p.m. Eastern. Dr. Don Thomas will be the guest expert on the topic: "Being Newly Diagnosed with Lupus." We're expecting a good turnout. Hope you can join us!
That's all the lupus scoop from my end. Wishing you a fantastic weekend!
