May is National Lupus Awareness Month. The Lupus Foundation of America is running a campaign entitled "Band Together for Lupus." Lupus is a disease that I myself am all too familiar with. While I have, for the time being, tested negative for lupus, I watched my dear mom suffer for years. My sister has also, in recent years, been diagnosed with this awful chronic disease.
So I encourage you to educate yourself on what lupus is, what it does, and what you can do to help find a cure, so another little girl doesn't have to watch her mother suffer and eventually die from the effects of lupus.
