A Lupus survivor posted a pic of her boyfriend SUPPORTING HER, as she fights LUPUS.
Lupus is a anti-immune disease that effects 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 1 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.
