Lupus Community Rallies Behind Fiancee With Lupus in 'Race to the Altar'
Date:5/23/2008

WASHINGTON, May 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- People living with the autoimmune disease lupus, and their families and friends, are rallying behind a couple competing in the NBC TODAY Show's annual "Race to the Altar." Annie and Tom of Chicago, Illinois are one of four couples who seek to be married in June live on the TODAY Show.

Annie was diagnosed with lupus at age 17. Because lupus is a lifelong and sometimes disabling chronic disease, Annie feared that she would never find true love or be accepted for who she really is as a person. However, it was Annie's inner strength and drive that grew from her struggles with lupus that her future husband, Tom, admires about her most.

The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) is supporting Annie and Tom's efforts to be selected as this year's winning couple. Like Annie, young women with lupus often have to battle not only the physical burdens of the disease, but also the emotional toll that a disease like lupus can extract.

The LFA urges everyone touched by lupus to help Annie and Tom have a memorable wedding broadcast live to millions of viewers from the Plaza outside the TODAY show studios. Vote for Annie and Tom by going online to today.msnbc.com or by texting the number 4 to 46833 before noon Eastern Time on Monday, May 26.
