My name is Katrina. I am a mother of a beautiful adult daughter. I’m active in my Church, Sorority, Lupus Support Group (Co-Founder and Past Facilitator), Knitting Group, Team Captain for the Annual Lupus Walk, and I Volunteer at various Performing Art Venues. I enjoy line dancing and hiking in local and regional parks.
I was diagnosed with Lupus in 1979. I have had many challenges in my life that includes 4 right hip replacements, right ankle fusion, coma (fluid surrounding my brain), right knee replacement, other joint pain and Lupus Nephritis. In 2000 my kidneys began going into renal failure. I was given chemotherapy for a year to slow down the deterioration. There are 5 stages of kidney disease/function and I’m in the 4th stage. Your encouragement, prayers and financial support will make it possible for me to have hope so that I may live a life of longevity and quality.

I want to take this time to thank everyone during this fundraiser. You may have come out to the restaurant and bought a meal or two, or you may have decided to stay put and pray for me, or called to say hello or that you cannot make it, or you may have decided to donate online. I want you to know how very grateful I am for your support, your thoughts and prayers and well wishes.

This is IT, our event day at Panera Bread has arrived!!
It has been so exciting planning this event. It has given me an opportunity speak or email former classmates, neighborhood friends as well as meet some of Katrina’s current friends and associates.
Katrina and I will be SO thrilled o see you. Katrina will be parked and remain in her car near the front to meet and greet you as you walk in. I will be near my car with extra fliers on hand just in case you can’t find the electronic flier on your phone (Panera Bread prohibits us passing them out inside).
One of my prayers has already been fulfilled, the weather has turned out so beautifully today! My other prayer is that all will go well, that people will be safe on the roads and enjoy themselves and their meal.
Thank you,take care and see you soon!!
