ans and five million people worldwide.

Mercedes Yvette, 2004 America's Next Top Model runner up and LFA spokesperson, and Kathy Crosby, Senior Vice President and Group Campaign Director for the Ad Council, conducted a special presentation to recognize the first-ever Ad Council awareness campaign on lupus sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. The campaign, which launched nationwide on March 31st is directed towards individuals most at risk for developing the disease -- young women of childbearing age, with a special focus on minority women. The objectives of this campaign are to help the public understand lupus and its health effects, and identify early warning signs of the disease so that they can ask their doctors for a medical evaluation.

WNBA player for the Atlanta Dream, Michelle Snow, was also in attendance. Michelle is a long-term supporter of the Foundation and will be assisting the LFA in an effort to engage athletes and celebrities to help raise awareness of lupus throughout the country. She is leading this initiative to honor her mother who passed away in 2004 from complications associated with lupus.

Presenting the awards were the daughter of Congressman James P. Moran, Mary Elise Moran, Director of Human Resources for the NFL Players Association; Senator Richard C. Shelby (R-AL) and Dr. Annette Shelby; and LFA spokesperson Mercedes Yvette.

Senator Richard C. Shelby and Dr. Annette Shelby and Congressman John Dingell (D-MI) and Debbie Dingell were the 2009 Honorary Congressional Chairs. LFA spokespersons Kelly Jean Drury and Tomiko Fraser Hines were also in attendance. Kelly Jean Drury is a former actress and currently is a model with the Ford Agency, and Tomiko Fraser Hines is also an actress and model, including former spokesperson and brand ambassador for Maybelline New York.
