Milwaukee singer raises money for lupus

Milwaukee singer raises money for lupus

Too sweet to be sour

Sometimes I think we’ve got it twisted. Phrases like “That’s life!”, “Life stinks!” or even “Life, I wonder, will it take me under? I don’t know,” permeate the social landscape. But no. Life is beautiful and for the living.

It is wholly transformative if one is able to see the good in everyday. The beauty of life in spite of its difficulties. It’s a recipe for endurance and the secret to overcoming obstacles.

That’s where my mind is nowadays as I think about my own fight against the cruel mystery known as lupus. I’ve been in this fight for over a year now. It has been filled with its hills and valleys but am thankful to say that I–in this moment–am feeling better than I have felt in quite some time.

This Saturday my wife and I will be in DC participating in the 7th Annual DC Walk to End Lupus Now.

We’d love your help.

Please contribute to our effort to end lupus once and for all. It’s an illness that affects over 1.5 million Americans with more than 16,000 new cases every year.

Although the walk is this Saturday, the 27th of April, we will be collecting donations until the 27th of June.

I’m doing this because I know that our efforts can help other people in this fight.

Vicevich, who suffers from Lupus, explained a little about the disease and announced that one day earlier $1 million had been donated toward a planned Lupus Center of Excellence, a patient support facility that would be part of the Hospital of Central Connecticut. 

 

Raising awareness to save lives from Lupus

“When you are in your 20’s and you are constantly sick, and you are being affected by having to go in and out of the hospital while your friends are partying and going to college, not only does it physically tear you down, it will break you down mentally and emotionally,” Sheppard said. “It is not easy to continue to smile and keep pushing. But that is what Skip to my Lupus is for.”
