Third Annual Walk, Talk & Rock to Cure Scleroderma
How lucky I am to have the support of so many wonderful family members and friends like you!!! I believe that is why I am able to maintain my spiritual strength and hope as I am challenged by the journey presented to me by my autoimmune diseases; Lupus, primary Scleroderma or Systemic Sclerosis, and Raynaud's Phenomenon. As you may remember, last year when we walked, I was having monthly chemotherapy treatments. That was completed in November 2010. My CT scan showed that the chemo seems to have worked in halting the progression of my pulmonary fibrosis (caused by the Scleroderma). To date, my pulmonary function tests (PFT) are not up to par, but I've had a continuous bronchitis this winter and we are all in hopes that my next PFT will show better results. In spite of all of this, I continue to work full time as a speech-language pathologist, had a beautiful wedding and reception on September 10, 2010, and own a home with my very supportive husband, Brian. We recently became the proud parents of a little, white, fluffy, toy Maltese, named Little Babe.
We are all praying for a cure; I believe, together, we can make it happen!
I would love to have you walk with us on June 26th in Plymouth. It's always a fun time with music and food and lots of good conversations and laughs. Let me know if you'll be joining us. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
