For this Mother's Day, (I had no computer access yesterday) I would like to make a post on behalf of my mother Brenda Buie. For many years now, I have witnessed her fight a cruel autoimmune disease we would later learn was lupus. Lupus is a disease that causes one's own body's immune system to attack itself, consistently and with sporadic intensity, leaving a ravaging effect on the mind and body. Lupus is a chronic, worsening disease with no cure. But much research is being done to develop treatment. So for this Mother's Day, and the month of May, I ask friends and family to donate what you can to support this cause and those like my mother who have fought this battle. All donations go directly to the Lupus Foundation of America.
