Lupus is a long term autoimmune disease which is known as the “disease of a thousand faces” due to its complex nature. Many who know me will know I was diagnosed with this disease at the age of 12 and it affected me greatly at the time! I am one of the very lucky ones who no longer lives with this cruel disease but unfortunately, so many still do! Despite not many people knowing about Lupus in Ireland, thousands of people are suffering with it! Lupus group Ireland provides much needed support for those people suffering from Lupus, and raise much needed awareness of the illness in Ireland. So any support at all will be greatly appreciated.
