May is Lupus awareness month! Bonnie Kassel and I are hosting the 3rd Annual Crystal Lake (NW Suburb of Chicago) Lupus Fundraiser on Saturday May 9th. We're the only community to do this and to decorate a community in purple! We need to bring more awareness, education and definitely research (which requires funds) to the general public about this cruel invisible disease. Bonnie's daughter, Taylor, and myself are 2 out of 1.5 million American's (5 million world wide that are affected by this disease) that suffer from this non-discriminating disease.We encourage people that come to our fundraiser to wear purple. By doing so they show their support and when they go to participating local stores and purchase items, they'll receive %'s off their items. Our goal with doing the annual fundraiser(s) is to bring the community together, bring more awareness and raise money that gets donated to the Lupus Foundation of America! Last year we raised $16,000 and this year our goal is to raise $20,000. For us, lupus awareness is not just 1 month, it's 365/24/7!
