"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do." -Leonardo da Vinci

"Your lifestyle- how you live, eat, emote, and think- determines your health. To prevent disease, you may have to change how you live." -Brian Carter

I believe that we can conquer Lupus in all of its forms. Mind over matter and sheer force of will are our only tools. Lupus is a war that we will win. We have everything we need to kill this thing. Sitting around waiting for things to happen to us is no way to go about getting better. We need eat like a health nut, exercise, laugh until we cry, and believe that we will be better soon. And we must remember that we aren't alone. There are millions of people who have a chronic illness, like Lupus. And there are millions more who know someone with Lupus or another chronic illness. An endless supply of support is there if we just reach out. -Megan McCarthy
