Band Together for Lupus

May is Lupus awareness month & this year's theme is "Band Together for Lupus." My fight with Lupus is a personal one. No, I do not have Lupus, but it has impacted me to my core. A day does not go by that I don't think of my mother's fight with Lupus that took her life too soon. She was only 47yrs old when she went home to be with our Lord after over a 15yr battle. I rejoice in that fact...the fact that she is home and free of pain. But I wont stop praying for a cure because it didn't find her in time. My family has been hit hard by this ugly disease. We've lost several family members and many more are still fighting today. I wear purple for my momma, my sisters, my daughters, my nieces & nephews, my cousins....for myself!!
