AMERICAN IDOL is a lupus survivor

All of you I believe know the battle we have been fighting for years now with lupus sle/nephritis. I found this an amazing story and am definitly voting for this girl. KNOWING what I KNOW about this illness as a fellow sufferer for her to get on that stage under those lights and do what she is doing is A MAJOR ASTOUNDING accomplishment. So please read her story and think about it while watching Idol

Leslie Hunt Advances to the Top 20 American Idol Finalists

The lupus community is cheering for Leslie Hunt of Chicago, Illinois as she advances to yet another round of competition on American Idol. Hunt is now one of the top 20 finalists. She will perform again on Wednesday, February 28, and the Lupus Foundation of America urges everyone to tune in and vote for Leslie as she seeks to become the next American Idol.

Hunt was diagnosed with lupus at a young age and includes on her American Idol profile that living with the autoimmune disease was the toughest obstacle of her life. Now 24, she has a new passion for life and is taking a proactive approach to overcoming the limitations she experienced while growing up with lupus.

Leslie is making everyone who is touched by lupus very proud as they watch her on national television. Her efforts are creating plenty of goodwill among all who are greatly impacted by lupus and who struggle on a daily basis with the debilitating and disabling consequences of the disease. Best wishes to you, Leslie.

PS: if you are a praying person even if your not please say a prayer tonight for Trevor and his family. (the co owner of treasures to scrap) Trevor is her son in law and is 30 years old and is in kidney failure. He is having complications and its not looking good. They are praying tonight for a miracle so please just remember them in your prayers please and also to bring comfort and peace to them. They are going through so much. It is so helpless to sit and watch someone you love sick and not be able to do anything. SO just keep them in your thoughts and prayers please. ALSO remember Traelyn and her daughter Gabby (we are having the auction for) they left for cincinatti yesterday I think it was or maybe this morning. This is another surgery for Gabby she is 4 years old. SO just remember all of them please.
