Lupus is a mysterious and debilitating disease that has no known cause or cure. This multi-system disease can attack any organ in the body leaving damage in its wake. Lupus is difficult to define, hard to understand, and a challenge to treat. This incurable autoimmune disease wreaks havoc on the lives of patients and their families.
The Lupus Foundation’s vision is a world without Lupus.
Lupus is not rare; over 1.5 million Americans and 5 million people worldwide suffer from lupus. Research states that 90% of people living with lupus are women and lupus is 3-4 times more prevalent among populations of color, but the reason for this is unknown. Lupus can occur in either gender, any race, at any age, and can attack any organ in the body. Every day, is a day closer to finding answers to the cruel mysteries associated with lupus.
The interlocking design of the BowTie depicts the community of people sharing the endless ups and downs of life with lupus. It is also reminiscent of the malar rash many patients have across their faces.
With your purchase of a BowTie, you are not only raising awareness, but $10 will be donated to the Lupus Foundation of America.
