A Lupus survivor posted a pic of her boyfriend SUPPORTING HER, as she fights LUPUS.
Lupus is a anti-immune disease that affects 1.5 million Americans, and millions more worldwide.
Although the cause of lupus is unknown, genetics and hormones are thought to play a role. African-American women are three times more likely than Caucasian women to get lupus and develop severe symptoms, with as many as one in every 250 affected.
And the disease is two times more prevalent in Asian-American and Latina women than it is in Caucasian women. Women of Native American descent are also disproportionately affected.
