Lupus Awareness- Day 22


“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a report in May 2002 which indicated that deaths attributed to lupus increased over a 20-year period, particularly among African American women ages 45-64.”

We cannot have any more death increases due to complications of lupus, and we cannot lose anymore African American women to this disease either- or women of any race/ethnicity for that matter. That’s why it is so imperative that we KNOW LUPUS, advocate for lupus specific research, and find a cure! Our women and men suffering from this mysterious disease depend on it.
