What do you want others to know about lupus?

Thanks to the efforts of LFA our daughter is in a clinical research trial at Duke. Until Ocotber 2010, there had been no new FDA approved drugs for treatment of Lupus in the past 50 years. Please support the LFA efforts in raising money, awareness and education for the 2 million people suffering from LUPUS.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

As the mother of a SLE LUPUS patient, I have watched an extremely healthy, athletic young lady go from the "top of her game" to bedridden. It is devastating! Watching her struggle daily to maintain some dignity to her life as she cares for her two-year old is heart wrenching. Thankfully, she is in a clinical research trial and appears to be improving as far as the constant pain and fatigue. Thank you LFA, thank you Duke Lupus Rearch Clinic!
