    ICandy Radio Brings Awareness About Lupus in A Unique Way!


    I first met the CEO of I Candy Radio through a goggle chat that we had with Judge Lauren Lake of Paternity Court and Cassandra Craven! We were so excited to be apart of the chat and we hit it off instantly. Now, Mrs. Nakisha Graves is hosting her own event. I will be there to cover it. It takes place in June and it’s a SUMMER FEST!! This is going to be the EVENT of the year. There will be celebrity guests such as Dennis L.A. White from the hit show Parenthood and the film Notorious, Tyrice Lollis and more. There will also be performances and Dj’s as well. This event is very special because it’s a charity event. All the money from the auction, etc will go to a Lopus Foundation. When Mrs. Graves asked me to cover the event I couldn’t help but to say yes.


    Lupus is a disease that can affect any part of the body causing major pain throughout the body. The immune system attacks the body, which results in tissue damage. There is no cure for Lupus as of yet. Some symptoms of Lupus are pain or swelling in joints and muscle pain. If you feel that you experience these symptoms often please see a physician.


    I look forward to going to the summer fest and enjoying the festivities. Summer Music fest will be a weekend long event that will increase the awareness of not just Lupus but also learn all about ICandy Radio and what it has to offer. Here is what this great event will include:
