Lupus Awareness Month

May is Lupus Awareness Month. We welcome you to Join StemExpress in raising awareness and promoting education about the disease and how it impacts daily life.  Lupus is an autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.  Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments.

Pin on a purple ribbon this month and join us in raising Lupus Awareness!  Why the color purple? Purple combines the motivation of the color red and the calmness of the color blue. It pacifies the mind and nerves, elevates the spirit, brings a sense of spirituality and courage to fight.

Researchers around the world utilize blood samples from healthy donors to better understand the differences in those with and without Lupus and other lifelong diseases in their quest for treatments and therapies to make the world healthier and raise the quality of life of those impacted.
