Posted Aug 25 2008 3:12pm
You can help increase public awareness and understanding of lupus by serving as a media spokesperson for lupus. Members of the news media want interesting and compelling stories about individuals whose lives have been affected by lupus. Here is your opportunity to share your story with members of the news media.
You must be 18 years or older. (Parents may submit a story about their child.)
The story must be about you, not someone else.
Tell about your life before you were diagnosed with lupus, the challenges you had to overcome to obtain a diagnosis, how your life has been affected by lupus, and what you believe the future may hold for you.
Be brief. Your story should not exceed 500 words (3,000 characters including spaces).
Describe something unique about your story that others who are unfamiliar with lupus might find interesting.
