Diagnosing a person with lupus can be a long and very difficult process for many people with the disease. In our recent Lupus Research Update, we spoke with Dr. Alana Levine about her approach to diagnosing and treating people with lupus. Dr. Levine is a rheumatologist at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City, and as a clinician, Dr. Levine references the research that has propelled treatment for those with lupus, and specifically notes work by colleagues at HSS and ALR-funded researchers Drs. Mary K. Crow and Jane Salmon. Please click here to listen to a podcast with Dr. Levine and learn about her approach to Diagnosing Lupus: http://bit.ly/VoicesofLupus*This podcast is meant to be informational and any individual who is being treated for lupus should consult their healthcare provider to determine the therapy that is right for them.

Are you looking for a way to help find a cure for lupus this summer? Even during the summer season, there are many ways you can stay involved with the ALR to help put an end to this disease. It all starts with YOU!

- Plan a summer event with MyFundraising.

- Get started on the fall Walk with Us to Cure Lupus season.

- Walk with Us virtually as part of a nationwide effort to raise funds for lupus research with Walk with U.S., Walk Local Cure Global.

Learn more about how you can continue to spread awareness and help raise critical funds that could be a part of the next big breakthrough in lupus research! http://bit.ly/InvolvedALR

We’re happy to share our Walker of the Week with you. Steve Walrad, an ultra-marathon runner who participated in the Northern Michigan Walk with Us to Cure Lupus, also took part in another effort to raise awareness and funds for lupus research. This year he ran 60 miles of M-22 in Michigan in honor of those with lupus. Steve shares why it is important to him:

“This year I ran M-22, from Northport to Frankfort, solo. What does that mean? It means just as it sounds. In the past, I have run with my support crew and pacers. This year I ran alone and only had a “safety” person with me during the 60 mile task. Of the four runs I’ve done to date, this one was the most difficult because I did it alone. So why do it solo? Because I want it to symbolize the battle that lupus patients face. Even though they have a support crew, they are the ones who face the day-in and day-out challenges. They feel the pain. It is my privilege to have run for Danielle, in her honor. And to run in the memory of my Aunt Jo who possessed the same strength. I admire these two women greatly.”

Thank you to Steve for going the extra mile on behalf of those with lupus.
