Tell someone about lupus today!
Lupus is like an allergic reaction by the body. The immune system essentially sees the body’s own healthy tissues and cells as foreign and attacks them.
Lupus is not contagious. You cannot “catch” lupus from someone or “give” lupus to someone. It is not like or related to AIDS or Cancer.
Lupus is unpredictable: It is a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and quiescence (the symptoms quiet and improve and you feel better).
Spread the word about Lupus. Someone you know has lupus!
