October is Lupus Awareness Month
Date:10/8/2007

A Campaign to Educate, Support, Raise Funds for Research

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Approximately 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus, the chronic (incurable) disease that can result in severe joint pain and swelling, fevers, fatigue, fevers, skin rashes, anemia, chest pains, sun sensitivity, and other health effects, including organ failure and death.
