The Lupus Society of Malaysia is organising a Walk-a-payung event - a walkathon in aid of people suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) on 14th Dec 2008 at Sunway Pyramid.
For more details on the event information, please click image to enlarge.
*Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal; however, with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare. As with other autoimmune diseases, the immune system attacks the body’s cells and tissue, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage.
SLE can affect any part of the body, but most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flares) alternating with remissions. Lupus can occur at any age, and is most common in women.
Ticket is only RM20 and you’ll get umbrella, goodies bags, breakfast etc etc.
I’ll be there, hoping to see you too!
My blessing No 3
