Help for Lupies: What Do Your Lab Tests Mean? by Shanelle Gabriel

Being that I firmly believe in patients taking an active role in understanding and managing their illness, I did a google search and thanks to www.cure4lupus.org, I was able to find a detailed explaination of the standard Lupus bloodwork and lab test abbreviations and values. Hope this helps!

Help me as I run the 2014 NYC Half Marathon for Lupus! by Shanelle Gabriel

Help raise money for Lupus as I run 13.1 miles!!!

Sooo, I've been living with Lupus for almost 10 years... 10 years is a pretty long time to deal with joint pain, chest pain, achiness, lists of (toxic) medications, doctor & specialists, severe fatigue, anemia, abnormal blood tests, and more.

So I decided that this year, right before my 30th birthday, I'm going to combine my love for running with my love of helping people like me battle Lupus. I'm running in the 2014 NYC Half Marathon to benefit the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation with a goal of $1,500.

I'm on Team Life Without Lupus, which is the official competitive sports team of the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and its West coast division Lupus LA, the nation’s leading organization providing comprehensive support services and research funding for the lupus community. 

Please donate to my page. $10, $20, $50, $100, any amount helps! 

http://www.crowdrise.com/lupusnychalf2014/fundraiser/shanellegabriel

$10 is:
- Like, two lattes at Starbucks
- A Big Mac Meal at McDonald's (if you still eat that)
- Okay, a burger and shake at Shake Shack
- ONE drink at a NYC bar

Can you donate a "drink" to Lupus?

 

Thank you so much for your support!
