Why so little Lupus support?
VCAugust posted:
My name is VC August. I have gone through so much frustration getting a correct diagnosis and dealing with the nightmare of lupus, that I recently published a book about it. The Healing Hour. Lupus is a major women's health crises that needs much more support than it has received over decades. Fifty years before a new lupus drug? Insane!

I couldn't agree more!!! Did you see in today's news that the British Health Authority will NOT pay for Benlysta for lupus patients? I think that is a crime!!! First Treatment in 50 years and lupus patients in Britain cannot get it!

I have had lupus for 28 years and I can say that awareness has definitely increased ten-fold over the past 25 years but still a very long way to go!

With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
