May is National Lupus Awareness Month, and Cindy Messerle, CEO of the Lupus Foundation for the Tri State Area and Cheri Perron, one of the foundation’s board members join Kristen for a conversation to raise awareness about Lupus and show support to those living with Lupus.
Lupus is a serious, life-threatening disease that can affect the body’s major organs. Twenty-five percent of all cases occur in the first two decades of life. Ninety percent of all affected are women, and women of color are affected 3-4 times more often. If you’d like to wear purple and post about May being Lupus Awareness Month, use the hashtag #LupusAwarenessMonth and tag @lupustristate in your posts.
