Backpacking thru Central America - Journey of Hope for Lupus

Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page.

The idea of backpacking thru Central America with my closest friends, is more than words could say.  It will be a personal, spiritual and physical journey of hope, fun, adventure, discovery and defeat.  In August, we will start our cultural and ecological exploration in Mexico and roam thru Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and end our two-week adventure in Panama.  In the spirit of hope, I will make this trip to help raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of America.  It will also be made in honor of everyone affected by Lupus.

Lupus is a debilitating and potentially fatal autoimmune disease capable of damaging virtually any part of the body. In Lupus, the immune system cannot distinguish between foreign substances and its own cells and tissues.  As a result it makes antibodies which unknowingly attack the body's cells and cause inflammation and pain, and permanently damage vital organs, which can lead to strokes, heart attacks and death. Most of those affected live with disfiguring rashes, scarring, kidney, heart and lung failure, impaired neurological function, debilitating pain and profound fatigue which greatly affects their quality of life.  Despite its enormous health implications, lupus remains a dangerously under-recognized and under-appreciated health issue.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. 100% of the donations will be directly to the LFA. It is the most efficient way to make a contribution to our efforts. Many thanks for your support and for creating awareness. Please don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to help make a difference.
