Lupus is a disease where your immune system attacks your body.  It causes inflammation, pain and can cause damage.  There are only a few treatments, but none are specific to Lupus and there is no cure.

May is Lupus Awareness Month in Oregon.

Molly's Fund has launched a campaign to increase awareness among patients and to help doctors do a better job diagnosing it.  Many people go months or years without being correctly diagnosed.
