'Basically it's Lupus Awareness Month in October and the Lupus Trust is having an awareness stand in Central Hall, St Thomas' Hospital, London SE1. The nearest tubes are Westminster or Waterloo. The stand will be manned from 11am-3pm every day on following days in October: 1st/7th/14th/21st/28th. We have different things happening or people visiting to draw attention to the stand.

Lupus is a chronic debilitating disorder of the immune system and is one of the major medical conditions of the modern age. It is a condition, which causes inflammation of virtually any system or organ of the body and can be life threatening. Symptoms range through the whole medical textbook from fatigue, depression and allergies to convulsions, pleurisy, heart and kidney failure. There is no cure but many patients are now treated successfully, ultimately stopping treatment. Visit their homepage...
