Brookes Butterfly Bash was created for Pediatric Lupus Awareness. Why? Well, my beautiful daughter, Brooke lost her battle to complications of Lupus Oct 2017. She was just 18 yrs. old. It’s hard to express how difficult it is to be moving on without my day-to-day companion, my best friend, and my beautiful everything. So, for me, it's important to share Brooke's story and take on a purpose of in honor of my child’s dream of helping children while creating awareness.

The Lupus foundation of America, Fl. Chapter has been partnered with me 3 years strong now. Why the Florida chapter?... because of people like Amy Yalden the CEO of the chapter, have supported me as they keep informed of the continued success this chapter does for Pediatric Lupus patients. Since Brooke was diagnosed at the age of 15, I felt that was a direction I wanted to go, they keep doing great things.

My newest Partnership is with TGH Foundation. Brooke was a patient Tampa General Hospital for years. The nurses and her Illness created a passion for Brooke, I remember in her saying in her sweet, determined, caring voice said “I’m going to be the best Pediatric Nurse out there”. How wonderful that the Foundation is creating a Fund in Brookes name! TGH’s involvement has given me the platform to help children in our community who also suffer from Lupus and our need help

I felt so helpless with Brooke, I couldn’t save her. I will save another child; I want to help their families. So please support My Annual Brookes Butterfly Bash and watch my purpose continue to blossom in Memory of my child Brooke.
