And welcome to the special Sunday night, pre-Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill edition of "On the Road to a Cure."
As you no doubt have heard, this coming Tuesday, March 3, 2009, is the Lupus Foundation of America’s 11th Annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. Even if you cannot physically join us on Tuesday, there are still several things you – and your family and friends – can do to help raise awareness about the seriousness of lupus. I'd like to highlight one way.
Send an eCard
Raise awareness about lupus and the need for new treatments by sending your friends and family an eCard. There are 3 cards to choose from: Eisenhower, nostalgic cars, and traffic jam. You can see an example of the Eisenhower eCard in this column.
Fifty years is entirely too long to wait for better, safer, and more tolerable treatments.
Help the Lupus Foundation of America raise awareness about the seriousness of lupus. Send an eCard to your family, friends, and coworkers today.
I'll be back again tomorrow night, to share with you how to contact your senators and representative on Tuesday, March 3. It's simple to do, and you can do it from the comfort of your home.
Until tomorrow night,
