Teddy Jack's donates to lupus research

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Teddy Jack's donated the profits from a month-long campaign to combat lupus.

More than $10,000 will go to the Lubbock Lupus Group.

It'll provide for research to battle the rare, incurable disease and help thousands of patients across West Texas with the condition.

"It really is a debilitating disease," said Kassandra Racu with the Lubbock Lupus Group. "Most of our members have to take time off from work frequently and they have a hard time taking care of their families as well from this disease."

A second store will be opening soon in Amarillo, which will also contribute to the fundraiser next year.
