June is Men's Health Month

June is Men's Health Month. A lot of misinformation exists about lupus, and men with the disease may discover that people are often surprised to learn that they have it because of the incorrect belief that lupus only occurs in women.  Read more about how lupus can affect men.

I'm a “1-in10-er”, the one in ten people that are diagnosed with Lupus that is male. I try not to let this define who I am, because I am more than a statistic. I am a husband extraordinarily happily married for almost 23 years to April. I am a father to three terrific sons, the oldest is 24 and the identical twins are 22. With generous support from family and friends, I am the team captain of The Wolf Repellent Crew for Tampa’s Walk to End Lupus Now LFA event since its 2011 inception. I had the privilege to meet with US Representative Kathy Castor in Washington D.C. for Lupus Foundation of America’s 2017 National Policy Summit to discuss continued Congressional funding for Lupus research and education programs.
