About Marisa

Marisa is from Portugal and was diagnosed with Lupus at 15 years old. She has a master´s degree in Communication Sciences and her PhD in Communication and Arts its being a work in progress through the years. She hopes some day it will have an end!

She was invited to join the Portuguese lupus association in 2018 because of her work for the awareness of Lupus using what she loves to do … running!

She is a master athlete since 2016 and she usually represents her country in European and world championships. She started running small distances and in 2020 she was able to run her first marathon. She believes in the power of the mind to control the body and reach balance.

About Lupus Europe all she can promise is her commitment, dedication, and willingness to set an example for all those who, like her, suffer from serious health problems. She wants to show that everything remains possible when we believe and do not resign ourselves, nor do we lower our arms in the face of battle.

What we manage to do every day is within our reach and is up to us. Every day there are small victories to conquer.
