And most of them will have suffered 4 or more years before receiving the diagnosis.
Awareness of lupus and its symptoms can help people seek appropriate medical evaluation, and ask the question Could I Have Lupus, so they can receive a somewhat timely diagnosis.
You can help minimize the silence by joining the effort to raise awareness and raise your voice in getting others to understand about this devastating disease that is common but not talked about often.
Lupus In Color encourages everyone to raise awareness of lupus in some way. Have you done your part?
There is still time to participate — Lupus Awareness Month is not over!
