For millions of people, primarily women of childbearing age, lupus is a life-altering disease that causes chronic pain and fatigue, organ damage and even death. There is no cure.

Even worse, lupus is incredibly difficult to diagnose. As many of the symptoms are vague and overlap with other diseases, individuals must often suffer for years before being diagnosed. Even when they finally get a name for their illness, it's often just as difficult to get family and friends to believe them, as many of the symptoms are invisible. People with lupus often "look fine" on the outside, even when they're barely holding themselves together.

Please do your part to help spread awareness! Just take a moment to visit this link and add your signature to the petition, urging President Obama to devote more attention to this devastating disease.

I wanted to sign but I was late. I knew this disease is life threatening and one of my friend is currently suffering from this disease.
