Reflecting upon my sister Ann who passed 27 years ago...

It's hard for me to believe that my sister Ann passed 27 years ago from SLE Lupus. She was a young vibrant woman who loved life and love to laugh. She was my older sister and I loved her dearly.

Years ago, people hardly knew what Lupus was and today it's finally coming into it's own through education and awareness. My sister was a warrior and although she struggled with it for a five year period, she gave it a good fight. In the end, her heart gave out and I began holding a torch for her. I have a fund in honor of her called The Ann Caroline Corrody Fund held at The Long Island Community Foundation. If anyone is interested in making a donation to her fund, It would be greatly appreciated and all of the monies go toward research in finding a cure for Lupus.
