Lupus Awareness Spread the Word

I have been posting blogs about my everyday life. I want to take a moment and post about Lupus. According to Wikipedia Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in many parts of the body. Common symptoms include painful and swollen jointsfeverchest painhair lossmouth ulcersswollen lymph nodesfeeling tired, and a red rash which is most commonly on the face. Often there are periods of illness, called flares, and periods of remission when there are few symptoms.

My late Uncle Frankie battled a hard fight against Lupus and passed away. This was before I was born so unfortunately I didn’t get the pleasure of meeting him. I heard many great stories about him. Sadly enough there is no cure for Lupus.

A woman who holds a very big place in my heart is currently battling Lupus, my mother in law. She is one of the strongest women I know though because with all her pain she never complains. She is always there for her grand children whom just adore her. I pray a cure is found soon because we want to keep her around forever.

My hope is that every reader takes the time to look up lupus and be aware. I want to spread Lupus Awareness because many people doesn’t know what this illness is. This could save a life. Thanks for reading and sharing!
