(WTNH) – May is Lupus Awareness Month. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that is difficult to diagnose, hard to treat, and has no cure.
According to the Lupus Foundation of America, at least 1.5 million Americans have lupus, and 90% of them are female.
The Walk to End Lupus Now events provide all people affected by lupus and their families the opportunity to come together to raise funds for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for those with Lupus.
People in Connecticut can participate in two different walks for Lupus this year.
