Donna Gray is raising money for Lupus UK

Event dates: 15th May 2021 – 23rd May 2021

My story

I’ going to walk 4.5 miles for Lupus and hold a (possibly virtual) coffee morning to help raise funds for the much needed awareness and research into Lupus.

As some of you are aware, the past 3 years have been very challenging but now all the dots are connecting and I’ve been diagnosed with autoimmune conditions, including Lupus (SLE). I had my first big flare from January this year and it’s taken months to gain some level of independence and strength again, with the help of autoimmune medications and family support, and I’ve still got a way to go. I can’t thank the NHS enough for the multi-department care I’ve received and will continue to receive throughout the course of this life long disease. This disease can be debilitating and disabling. I experienced my first bout of not being able to lift a cup to drink, walk up the stairs properly, difficulty getting dressed or cutting/preparing meals - all things you take for granted.

Last year I was walking 26 miles for MacMillan, this year I struggle to walk more than 3.5 miles without systemic joint pain afterwards...but I’m going to challenge myself to walk an extra mile, followed by a further coffee morning event to take time to chat with friends and family.

Please donate what you can, thanks.

Thank you for your support and donations so far, I appreciate it so much! I’m now pretty exhausted, sleepy, stiff and my joints are hot, aching and throbbing. I managed to walk an additional 1.5 miles to reach a total of 5 miles. I was so lucky to have the stunning, ever changing scenery to keep me going too!
