Meet Kim Ennis! She is a strong and passionate lupus advocate. In the summer of 2015, Kim was searching for answers. She needed to know what lupus is and how she can better manage this chronic illness. Kim found a supportive community to not only help her understand, but also help her to find her own voice. Through her journey of fighting back against lupus, Kim has empowered herself with education. She has attended all the local educational summits, participated in the Ohio Lupus Needs Assessment, and regularly attends support groups. She has networked in health fairs and helps spread the awareness of lupus needs in our community. While Kim waits for modern science to help the lupus community, she has decided to support the Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter by being a lead community volunteer. In addition to charging our state capitol to support other lupus patients, Kim helps to fight back against lupus every day. Please help us thank Kim for her time, compassion, and dedication.
