Lupus Foundation of Southern Arizona logo

hello, my name is LUPUS. 

90% of the 16,000 Americans I Affect each year are women.

Anyone can develop lupus, including children and men, but nine out of ten people who have lupus are women, and the disease usually strikes during the childbearing years. Lupus is three times more common in African-American women than in Caucasian women and is also more prevalent in women of Latino, Asian, and Native American descent.

In honor of International Women’s Day, we celebrate the strength and support of all the lupus warriors who are touched by the disease, including those who are most affected by it – our daughters, mothers, sisters, wives, friends, and loved ones.
