Sophia was diagnosed with LUPUS at the age of 25. This chronic illness has affected multiple organs and Sophia battles with fatigue and physical pain each and every day. In 2006, doctors diagnosed Sophia with kidney failure due to lupus nephritis, a condition affecting 5-10 adults with lupus. Sophia spent several years on dialysis waiting for a compatible kidney. In 2017, Sophia received a successful kidney transplant. We thank God for Sophia’s health progress and new outlook in life. We admire her resilience as she continues to live with lupus. Please join us in supporting Sophia and all patients afflicted with Lupus. Let's find a cure!
We invite you to join Northern California's largest lupus awareness event, the Drumbeat for a Lupus Cure 5K Run & Walk. Now in our 23rd year, 2017's Drumbeat 5K is expected to make its mark with 1,000 expected runners and walkers, friends, family members, community members and exhibitors. Oh, and the Drumbeat 5K isn't just pet friendly, you can enter your four-legged bestie in our Mascot Contest!
