Lupus Awareness Month
May is Lupus Awareness Month.
This Lupus Awareness Month, join the Lupus Foundation of America in efforts to raise the understanding of lupus and secure support for expanded medical research.
Lupus is more pervasive and more severe than people think, and has an impact that the public doesn't realize. In fact, research shows that nearly two-thirds of the public knows little or nothing about lupus. You can help change that!
