NuLife Supports Lupus Awareness Month
May 26th, 2013 · (0) comments
May is Lupus Awareness Month and NuLife is supporting this initiative in memory and honorr of Miesha’s cousin, Elinda C. Young, who passed away last year at the age of 30 as a result of Lupus.
It’s one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth. Lupus strikes without warning, has unpredictable, sometimes fatal effects, lasts a lifetime, and has no known cause and no known cure.
There’s more to lupus than meets the eye; It is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with, and a challenge to treat. Lupus is hidden from view because people often times may not look sick. It is more pervasive than people think, and strikes on a scale that the public does not realize.
The Lupus Foundation of America is embarking on a cross-country quest to solve the cruel mystery of lupus and end its devastating impact. We are going to communities across the nation to educate individuals with lupus, their families and their healthcare professionals, raise public awareness of lupus, and to urge Congress to increase support for lupus medical research. Join us in the fight to end lupus. Learn more about the “Help Us Solve the Cruel Mystery™ National Tour”.
Each day for the month of May, we will post a fact about Lupus to help all understand the disease. To learn more about Lupus visit www.lupus.org.
