Lupus Foundation of America's "Healthy Aging & Lupus" Chat Transcript Posted Online

Morning everyone ...

Just a few lupus-related items to share with you.

"Healthy Aging & Lupus" Chat Transcript Posted Online

First, thanks to everyone who attended the "Healthy Aging & Lupus" webchat hosted by Dr. Ronenn Roubenoff on Wednesday. It went very well. A copy of that chat transcript has now been posted online.

And, we hope you will join us for the October 8, 2008 webchat. The topic is "Reproductive Health & Lupus," and it's hosted by Dr. Bonnie Bermas. Mark your calendars for that.

Fall 2008 issue of Lupus Now magazine is available

In the new Fall 2008 issue of Lupus Now, Positive Makeup introduces our readers to Miss Nicole Paxson, who was diagnosed with lupus at age 12. “I’m a firm believer that things happen for a reason,” she says. “Find out what that reason is, and find something you’re passionate about.” Nicole’s passion is her cosmetics company.

Ask anyone about their lupus medications and they’ll probably tell you it’s a true "love-hate” relationship. In this feature article, Tough Medicine acknowledges that, at one time or another, just about everyone with lupus has dreamed of tossing all their meds right down the drain.

In the feature article Baby Steps you’ll meet people who have completed their families in a variety of ways -- from traditional pregnancy to adoption to surrogacy when lupus prevented a pregnancy. The end result is what matters: a child to love, no matter how he or she became part of the family!

So, there’s your sneak peek at what’s in store in this fifth anniversary issue of Lupus Now. We hope you enjoy it!
