On this show, Lisa Foxx talks to the Founder and CEO of the Social Butterflies Foundation, Chastity Corbett about her compelling story, once diagnosed with Lupus. She has spent the past 12 years fighting to raise awareness about lupus and sharing her experiences to help other lupus patients. Lupus is so misunderstood and often misdiagnosed because it disguises itself as so many other things which can lead to deaths that could have been prevented. Lupus affects approximately 1.5 million Americans. This chronic, debilitating autoimmune disease attacks the skin, joints, and organs. It is not terminal or contagious but can be life threatening. Currently, there is no cure. Lupus patients face a daily struggle with chronic fatigue, joint pain, and numerous complications. Unfortunately, because most lupus patients do not look sick, they often feel alone and isolated. BUT WE CAN HELP!
