Thank You for the petition to devote more money toward lupus research/awareness. May/2012 is Lupus Awareness Month as you know, and I just wanted to leave a note to tell you that I admire you so very much for your strength and faith in fighting this least known or studied disease. I have a daughter who at age 42 was diagnosed with Lupus and overlapping diseases. May God Bless You and give you added strength Joanna. Elizabeth M.
