8-year-old Jaiden Rosales loves her JiJi, and she doesn’t like seeing her JiJi be sick. Jaiden’s JiJi Tammy Treece-Rosales has lupus, and Jaiden decided to start a Pennies 4 Lupus Drive to raise money to find a cure for lupus and help for her JiJi.

Jaiden has set up collection jars around her school. People have even mailed in rolls of pennies to help Jaiden’s mission.

She even has a walking team in the upcoming Walk to End Lupus Dallas on April 5th at Lonestar Park in Grand Prairie. Her team is the Krushing Lupus Krewe and they have a Mardi Gras theme. Register and find more information on the Walk To End Lupus Now at lupus.org.
