Meet the Dorsey & Knill Family! Amanda and her troop help educate and provide lupus awareness. Kathleen is Amanda’s sister and her #1 cheerleader. She supports her sister mentally and physically. Most often, Kathleen goes with Amanda to her doctor’s appointments. Kathleen focuses on keeping up with research and attends the patient and caregiver classes. She wants to be the most informed to help her sister fight back and take charge. These two are fierce women fighting lupus together! William is Amanda’s 17 year old nephew who volunteers in the lupus office. Sweet little Brianna is Amanda’s 8 year old niece. She has hosted lemonade stands with Amanda’s daughter, Isabella to raise money for lupus research. Thank you for the years of dedication Amanda and her family have provided to the chapter.
