5 New Clinical Trials for Lupus Research

5 New Clinical Trials for Lupus Research

I’ve been a dedicated advocate for lupus awareness and research for the past 2 years. A brief definition of Lupus: a life threatening autoimmune disease and there is no cure as of yet. I am proud to make aware that we (Lupus Advocates) are helping make ground for finding a cure for Lupus. I received an email from Lupus Research Alliance that there have been 5 new clinical trials that were initiated. I feel that with these trials we will be another step closer to finding a cure for Lupus. I personally wish that they would have had these trials when my mother was alive because maybe it would have bought her some extra time. The number one thing is, that doctors need to be more aware of the signs and symptoms of Lupus and that it is life-threatening, and also be able to properly diagnose it much earlier. The five clinical trials are:

1.) VAlitidation in Lupus of an Electronic Patient Reported Outcomes Tool (VALUE)

2.) Rayos Inhibits Fatigue in Lupus Erythematosus (RIFLE)

3.) Dynamic Imaging to Assess Variation in Lupus Nephritis (DIVINE)

4.) CC-220 (Cereblon Modulator)

5.) M2951 (Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor)

If you or anyone you know is interested in knowing more about these clinical trials please contact Lupus Research Alliance at 646-884-6074

I am raising money that will benefit Lupus Research in memory of my mom who passed away back in May of 2014 from a battle with Lupus. For anyone who knew my mom knows she had a heart of gold and would literally give the shirt off her back for anyone. Back in 2012 she was first diagnosed with this ungodly disease. By 2013 she had lost the abilty to walk due to complete paralysis in her left leg. She couldn't even walk up the stairs, so like any son would do I carried her. So here I am raising money in her memory. Like I stated earlier I have been a dedicated advocate for Lupus Research for the passed 2 years and would like to continue being an advocate for the rest of my life. If you could find it in your heart to make a donation because no matter the amount every donation is another step closer to finding a cure for Lupus. Thanking you in advance!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
