I’m writing this letter to invite you to participate in the Walk to End Lupus Now Run and Walk event set for April 26 at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier in Galveston.

This walk will help to raise money for lupus research and education programs while increasing awareness of lupus and rallying public support for those who suffer from it.

What is lupus? There are several types of lupus, but the main types are discoid lupus erythematous and systemic lupus erythematous.

There’s no cure for lupus yet, however, there’s ongoing research to help discover new medications and treatment for patients.

To register, visit www.LupusTexas.org or call 713-529-0126. If you don’t have a particular team to join, please feel free to be on my team, Team Kathy 2014.

I’m so happy we are having this walk in my hometown. If you can’t walk, please come out and support those who are walking.

Kathy Saenz lives in Hitchcock.
