I've shared with the world the story of my life with lupus, and now I'm asking any Americans who read this blog to help. It will just take a few minutes to email your U.S. Representative asking him or her to cosponsor the Lupus REACH Amendments of 2997, H.R. 1192, which will significantly enhance efforts to understand and treat lupus. The Amendments will increase lupus research, support vital lupus epidemiology studies and data collection, and authorize programs to heighten public and professional awareness of lupus.
There are currently 40 cosponsors, but we need 395 more. So if your representative isn't on the following list, please write by using this simple form, and ask your representative to get on board with H.R. 1192. If you feel so inclined, I'd appreciate if you'd pass this information along to family and friends, but don't spam them!
Thank you for your support.
