Every Tuesday in May we will show you the Faces of Lupus! Lupus affects individuals of virtually every age, race, ethnic background and socioeconomic status. Yet some groups are notably affected, with the disease three times more common in African-American women than in white women. It is also more frequent among women of Hispanic/Latina, Asian and Native American descent.
Often, you can look at a Lupus Warrior and never know they are fighting a bitter hard battle daily. It’s important to see the faces that can bear the pain within without showing it to everyone who sees them.
These are the Faces of Lupus from every walk of life fighting the same battle. Supporting one another in the battle for their lives.
These are the Faces of Lupus, they are brave, courageous and strong!
