Its almost that time folks! September is right around the corner and you know what that means.... Lupus walk time!!
We have had sooo many changes in our lives since the last post in October 2009. Sharon and Cherish have both updated our personal blogs but the Team Cakesy blog kinda got left behind... Here are a couple of quick updates you REALLY don't want to miss:
Sharon was featured on a PBS special that documented her life with Lupus. The special included interviews with her and her family and friends, along with tons of pics of her over the years. I managed to have a few photo cameos but sadly enough could not make it back to town in time to appear with her. I am soooo proud of her and Thankful that PBS is getting the word out! You can watch the full video HERE
As if that weren't enough, AOL's Blackvoices published an article this week about the daughter of rapper Snoop Dogg, who is also battling lupus. Such a sad story because she is so young... and what a spark for us when we opened the online article and see a link to Sharon's PBS video!! How amazing is that in terms of exposure???
Sharon is now working for the Lupus Alliance of America's Michigan Indiana Affiliate. She, along with the rest of the organization, are doing GREAT things! The word is getting out which means (hopefully) the research, funding and awareness are all growing even faster! Stay tuned for more great news and feel free to come out and show your support or donate to Team Cakesy:
