FLORIDA – The Lupus Foundation of Florida presents the St. Petersburg Walk for Life without Lupus. The Walk for Life without Lupus increases community awareness of this debilitating disease. Funds raised support research as well as the educational and public policy advocacy efforts of the Lupus Foundation of Florida.
Lupus is an autoimmune, chronic, inflammatory disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues and organs. There is no cure for lupus. Education for patients, providers and caregivers is essential in the management of lupus. There is no definitive test for diagnosing lupus. There is no cure. Lupus affects 1.5 million people in the United States, and 100,000 in Florida.
About the Walk
