An important note from JD Systems co-owner Jonathan Joyce:

Hi everyone,

My best friend’s wife was diagnosed with Lupus this past year. I recently registered for the 2011 Alliance for Lupus Research Walk with Us to Cure Lupus in New Jersey, which will be held on May 21, 2001.

100% of all contributions to this event go to support lupus research programs that help prevent, treat and cure lupus.

Please support me in this cause by clicking here to make a secure, tax-deductible donation.

You can also mail your contribution by check. Make all checks payable to the Alliance for Lupus Research and include my ID number in the check’s memo line: NJ-741613

About the Walk with Us to Cure Lupus Event

The ALR Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is a national event that changes lives and brings people together united in the quest to end the suffering caused by lupus.. Your support improves the lives of those living with this disease.

An estimated 1.4 million Americans suffer from lupus, making lupus more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. The exact cause of lupus is unknown.

Lupus has no cure. I chose to walk with ALR because:

  • 100% of all funds raised go to support lupus research because the Board of Directors pays for all the ALR’s fundraising and administrative costs
  • The ALR has committed $60 million to research since 1999
  • The ALR is the largest private funder of lupus research in the world
  • Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

    Sincerely,

    Jonathan
