May is Lupus Awareness Month!
It is believed that approximately 5 million people throughout the world have a form of lupus. Lupus strikes mostly women of childbearing age (15-44). However, men, children and teenagers develop lupus, too. Women of color are 2-3 times more likely to develop lupus but people of all races and ethnic groups can develop lupus.
Sigma Upsilon Nu, SL Sorority has been affected very closely by lupus and as in any true sisterhood, if one of us hurts, we all hurt. More importantly, when one finds a cure, we have all been cured. Please take a moment to stop by our blog each day this month for little known facts about lupus as we bring awareness during the month of May through events planned all this month.
