CNY Lupus Walk & Paddle 2019

Community

Lupus affects close to 1.5 million Americans, but is a little-known disease that can take up to 6 years to be diagnosed. “For some people it takes decades, some people never have an accurate diagnosis because lupus mirrors so many other diseases. It’s very elusive,” says Lupus Walk chair, Carol Cosgrove.

Lupus is tricky to diagnose, often misdiagnosed. No two Lupus warriors will display identical symptoms. It is more common than multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy, and AIDS combined.

You can help in the fight against lupus by joining the on Saturday 25 May 2019, at  CNY Lupus Walk & Paddle 2019Erie Canal Park, 5750 Devoe Road in Camillus. Registration is at 9:30am, event begins at 10:15am.

Funds will go to provide research programs of Central New York to shorten distance between symptoms and diagnoses of lupus and related autoimmune diseases.
