Would You Like to Share Your Story? LFA Seeks Interviewees for Article

Good morning everyone ...

Hope you had a good weekend. The weather was a bit unpleasant / uncooperative here in DC. Cold, gray, gloomy and rainy. I spent Saturday recovering from my trip to the personal trainer on the previous Thursday evening. Boy was that a humbling experience. But I guess you have to start somewhere.

On the advice of a friend, I watched 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie (Julie Andrews and Carol Channing) this weekend. It was ... peculiar. And there was a very odd subplot that seemed to be tacked on to the storyline.

And now to lupus news.

As a reminder, this morning at 10:30 a.m Eastern time, Mercedes Yvette, LFA spokesperson and 2004 runner up on America's Next Top Model, and Dr. Gary Gilkeson, chair of the LFA’s Medical-Scientific Advisory Council, will appear on "Healthy Life," a regular health segment on ABC News Now. We hope you can tune in.

Update: We have just learned that the actual episode will not air online today; however the taping of the episode is taking place today. The episode of the lupus interview will be posted online to ABC News Now in the near future. When we learn when that will be, we will share it with you. Sorry for any inconvenience. We appreciate your patience.

Looking for Article Interviewees

Are you someone who has been profoundly affected by the love and support of a friend or family member in your battle against lupus?

If so, LFA wants to talk to you. We are looking for individuals who want to share their story about how a friend/loved one has helped support them in their disease.

If you have a story you would like to share, please write a few paragraphs about your experience, and then email it to us at info@lupus.org. Someone will then follow up with you. That's all there is to it.

Until next time,
