    Pamela Mendicino

    "My name is Pamela Mendicino, I am the Willoughby Support Group Lupus Facilitator. As the leader of the Willoughby Group, I can relate with many of the attendees at my group because I have lupus as well as other autoimmune diseases. I am married with two beautiful daughters. I have a business background and I use to work in the administrative field. Although I do not work anymore. Recently, my oldest daughter has been diagnosed with lupus as well. In my house, we are all about family and I never let me disease get me down! Though I have had some obstacles, I still stay as positive as I can and pick mtself up and try to inspire others. I have learned many different way of living with lupus, and I try to incorporate that into our meetings. I hope that the attendees of the Willoughby group leave with a positive attitude and not the deafeted mentality they have when entering the group. I try to live life to the fullest and never take a day for granted. My journey as taught me to appreciate simple aspects of life, and to always help others who cannot help themselves."

  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.
