Adrienne on CBS-NY for Annual Lupus Walk
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — CBS2, The Lupus Research Alliance and Adrienne joined thousands of people in the fight against lupus.
Adrienne was asked to speak at the walk on October 12th on the main stage. She shared her story about her lupus diagnosis and more. Together, citizens are raising money to fund new and innovative research programs that will help lead to new treatments for the disease and, one day, a cure.
“There’s been only one new treatment for lupus in 60 years … We have a lot of work to do and a lot of the current treatments are quite toxic. So our job at the Lupus Research Alliance and part of the awareness that we bring at the walks is to fund the most innovative, worldwide research that we can to bring safer and new treatments and ultimately a cure to lupus,” said Andrea O’Neill, executive director of the Lupus Research Alliance.
