Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks healthy cells, tissues. It can effects any part of the body (your joints, skin and organs causing inflammation and damage. Lupus is painful, debilitating and destructive and can be fatal. As a lupus ambassador and patient myself I know firsthand the impact this disease can have on the lives of not only the people living with l

upus but also on the family members who are helping care for them. That is why my family and I are committed to doing our part help to raise public awareness and spreading some cheer.

Educating others about lupus and its impact is essential. Men with lupus face unique challenges related to their health and well-being. They may encounter misconceptions that lupus is primarily a women’s disease so advocating for their health, finding knowledgeable healthcare providers, and managing their medications effectively is vital. Each person’s experience with lupus is unique, and these challenges can vary. If you’re a man with lupus, consider joining a support group to connect with others who understand your journey. Check out were my fellow warriors Dion Langley and Emmitt Henderson III address living with lupus from a male perspective.
