Lupus is chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of your body. When you have lupus, your body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy tissue in your body. Called “the great imitator,” lupus often takes multiple doctors’ visits to diagnose, and even more to determine a course of treatment. If you need help shouldering the burden of medical bills and the costs of living, it can seem like you have no place to turn. But there is hope.
