We Win Foundation
hope, strength and comfort for the individual/family/caregiver of Lupus and other autoimmune diseases
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body such as the joints, organs and skin. Lupus can range from mild to life threatening. Presently, there is no cure for Lupus.
An autoimmune disease occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys health body tissue. There are over eighty (80) types of autoimmune diseases.
The white blood cells in the body's immune system help protect against harmful substances. Examples include bacteria, viruses, toxins, cancer cells, and blood and tissue from outside the body. These substances contain antigens. The immune system produces antibodies against these antigens that enable it to destroy these harmful substances. When you have an auto immune disorder, your immune system does not distinguish between healthy tissue and antigens. As a result, the body sets off a reaction that destroys normal tissue. In other words the body is attacking itself.
God has blessed me with the opportunity to create a foundation that will give hope and aid to others. I consider myself a "Prisoner of Hope" - and it has served me well. I have a mission, which is to help others believe in themselves and achieve their goals - despite having a chronic illness. My mission is to encourage and aid people who suffer from autoimmune diseases, as well as the extended family members who love, care and support those suffering. I have learned so much and my tears of pain have turned into ones of HOPE. This is because now I am THRIVING and WINNING with Lupus and six (6) other autoimmune diseases. This drive gives me faith that our Foundation will help those afflicted to improve their quality of life considerably, and to assist the families and caregivers who support them. Our focus is on building HOPE and helping to foster healthy living. I have found the purpose of MY pain... Life STILL awaits. WE WIN!
