VC August
Diagnosed at 53

What do you want others to know about lupus?

Like many diseases that affect mostly women, it is at the bottom of the list for research. It took 52 years for a new Lupus drug to come out.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

It took me years to get a diagnosis. I almost lost my business and my eyesight because of the whole heath care maze. I live in New York City, it is not as though there is a lack of doctors. A am launching a book on December 5th about my struggle. It is called The Healing hour. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/v-c-august/3b/aa0/9a6
