Lupus Awareness Month Day 2

May is Lupus Awareness Month!

Here is our fact for Day 2: Lupus affects nine times more women than men, and more women of color than white women. African-American and Latina women with no family history of lupus have about a one in 250 chance of developing the disease.

May is #LupusAwarenessMonth

In honor of May being Lupus Awareness Month, I am sharing a fact about lupus every day in May. Please share and raise awareness about lupus and its impact on the lives of millions of people like me, and our families.

Lupus Fact 1: There’s no cure for lupus, so current treatments include a focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups.

Please share! Let’s raise awareness so we may find a cure!
