What do you want others to know about lupus?

Lupus treatments have come so far! Imagine the break throughs there would be if we could raise more awareness!

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

My mom was diagnosed with lupus when I was 3 years old, my little brother was just 6 weeks old. We have watched her struggle off and on through out our whole lives. I can remember times where she was in the hospital for what seemed like weeks at a time. Her most recent flare up was about 4 years ago. She had to have emergency heart surgery as her lupus cause multiple major blockages in her heart. She hasn't had a bad flare up since but I always fear when the next will come because they seem to get more severe each time. I'm not ready to lose my mom. That's why I want to raise awareness and fight for a cure!
