May 22 Lupus Fact

Those who have lupus are more likely to suffer a stroke than people without lupus. In fact, some people with lupus suffer from recurrent strokes, especially if they also have high blood pressure. Stroke can be caused by Antiphospholipid Syndrome or APS. APS is a protein that can form with lupus which can make the blood thick and sticky. Other causes of stroke could be vasculitis, inflamed blood vessels or if you have CNS lupus.

This is your twenty-second butterfly of hope. We need awareness and a cure!

Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
