Valinda - Awesome news! Welcome aboard. It is encouraging to see people who strive and live through the worst to rebound and help others. The ideas you have come up with for Leap for Lupus are pure genius. So how are those babies of yours? I bet very proud. I would love to give my daughter that gift of positive spirit. In fact, I'll print this for her. Would love to be able to sky dive, always wanted to. I'm from Southern New Jersey (not by choice), is there anything I can do for you on this side of the Continent? Please let me know.
Hi Kish, welcome to the "family". Glad to meet new people. Love the energy it brings. There is so much for all of us to learn about each other and the disease. This has been quite enlightening for me and everyone here a blessing. I hope you find comfort and help here too.
Wish you both the best - Kristin
