It was a running joke on the medical drama “House.”
But for nearly 1.5 million Americans, their diagnosis was lupus.
It`s a disease you`ve likely heard of, but might not know much about –but that`s what this month is for!
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect your skin, joints, and organs.
Basically, your immune system can`t tell the difference between the good and bad cells so your body attacks it`s healthy tissue.
It`s a harsh disease and even more unfortunate, one that is hard to diagnose.
Zuriel Gibson has been living with lupus since 1997 -and she`s opening the Gibson Lupus Resource Center to provide patients with the help and support she wasn`t lucky enough to have herself.
Gibson will host three-events this month and she hopes to spread the word about the disease so many people know so little about.
The main thing Gibson wants everyone to remember.
