Lupus is a life-altering disorder.  When it decides to strike, it does so with force and regardless of age or celebrity status, has the power to make a person’s life come to a grinding halt.  New treatment options are being researched every day and more studies are being done to provide answers about the disease.  This is largely thanks to those celebrities out there who are bravely sharing their journey with lupus and showing us how they are fighting the battle.  Thanks to their tweets, blogs and genuine words, lupus patients like Selena Gomez are advocating for themselves and every other lupus patient out there.
