Lupus is a chronic disease where inflammation occurs in one or more parts of the body. It belongs in a category of diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, juvenile diabetes and scleroderma. Among the various types of lupus the most common is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This type of Lupus is estimated to affect every 1 in 1000 Canadians. SLE is a complex condition that targets any tissues or organs of the body including skin, lungs, muscles, joints, heart, kidneys, blood vessels and the brain.

Thank you again for coming out to the Lupus Bowl in support for Lupus Ontario!
