The Could I Have Lupus? campaign is designed to heighten awareness and create a sense of urgency about lupus. With the help of women who are actually living with lupus, we are sending a message to women who are suffering from lupus symptoms – that they can find support, hope and, most of all, answers. They just have to start by asking the right question: “Could I have lupus?”

To learn more about the National Lupus Awareness Campaign, visit CouldIHaveLupus.gov.
