May is Lupus Awareness Month! Tomorrow, I’m encouraging you to “Put On Purple for Lupus Awareness!” It’s important for us to put on purple in support of those who suffer from the brutal impact of this disease.
Research shows that lupus is more pervasive and more severe than people think. No one knows what causes lupus. Scientists think that people are born with the genes to develop lupus and that something brings on or “triggers” the disease and symptoms.
To find out more about lupus, such as the symptoms, treatments, the risks of developing lupus and more information, visit the Lupus Foundation of America website at http://www.lupus.org.
