Shelby Spiker has 3 reasons...more correctly 3 people she is organizing A Lupus walk for...all them living with the disease.¬† She says "my mom...she's amazing...i need here around when I get older...even when I'm 40 i need her." The other two are her cousin and her aunt.
"my cousin Ashley she has it pretty bad...she deserves a life with out it.¬† The love of her family...combined with a thought that just wouldn't leave her head, have led to this event. Her mom says "she is amazing she would move heaven and earth for me"
¬†¬† Deanna says the disease¬† pops up at random times and in variety of ways doctors can help manage the symptoms, but not the disease.
¬†Deanna says " one main things is awareness most people, they don't know what lupus is."
¬† Shelby is taking on the role of standing up and in a strong voice...trumpeting the battle many are fighting against this disease.
" I hope to see strangers come.....get the word out people's lives are being destroyed." Perhaps it will be one of those strangers that will help save those closest to Shelby.
