Butterflies, Lennon, and Lupus

Posted by Katina on May 22, 2010 at 3:03 am

Last week, one of my friends called to say she had an extra ticket to a lupus event featuring Julian Lennon. Did I want to go? Yes!!! Could I? Sadly no. I missed Julian Lennon performing Lucy, a lupus-tribute and I was kind of crushed. But I decided that it was a great hook for a Song-in-Action blog entry.

Check out James Scott Cook and Julian Lennon on the Lupus Foundation of America website as they explain how the song Lucy came to be and their goal to raise funds and awareness for Lupus research. Watch James and Julian perform Lucy (after interview on the origins of Lucy, app. 3:30).

Lucy's Legacy: Julian Lennon and James Scott Cook Join Musical Forces for Lupus Research

On a more personal note, I want to thank everyone who supported Team Metamorphosis‘ fundraising efforts during the 2010 DC Walk for Lupus Now.

With the help of my mom and sorors Keisha and Monica, Team Metamorphosis raised almost $1400 (with more coming in before May 30th). I am very excited and humbled by the support of friends, family, and the virtual community formed on Twitter and Facebook. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Much Love,

Katina
