IFAA and the Walk for fundraising sponored by AARDA! To Help get a handle on Autoimmune Arthritic Illnesses!

I am not near any of the "walks". But, I wanted to show my support so I joined "virtually" the IFAA Team!

There are dozens of reasons why WE need as much support as possible when it comes to Autoimmune Arthritic Illnesses!

We need more research, more Rheumatologists, and Pediatric Rheumatologists also. We need better medications, hopefully someday with less side effects, and of course we desperately need to find a CURE! and/or STOP these horrid life altering, life stealing illnesses, diseases and syndromes well before they take over!

So, I invite you to walk, or walk virtually. Or give a donation, and you can "give" what you feel you can. Any amount is one more step for hope, help, research, medications, reasons why our immune systems go "haywire" and A cure.

I did not realize until this morning that the actress "Kelly Martin" whom I just happen to LOVE, is the National Autoimmune Walk Ambassador this year! Her sister who suffered symptoms for a long while and then was diagnosed with Lupus, that later took her at a young age gave Kelly a longing to try and stop these horrid illnesses.

I am an avid fan of Kelly's. In fact I record all of her movies on the "Hallmark Channels" and sometimes watch them more than once. I think she is a tremendous actress and an amazing woman.

Here is a link to the page where she has an open letter about her personal situation due to her sister's illness and why she supports AARDA and this walk:
