    Default Oprah

    I received this email from the IL Lupus Foundation and I thought I would share it with all of you. Maybe if we inundate Oprah with emails she'll do a show for us.

    Suggested Text:

    Dear Oprah,

    Thank you for continuing to educate the world about important issues. I’m writing today to ask you to feature lupus, the chronic, often disabling auto-immune disease, on your program.

    Lupus is an often misunderstood disease – even Dr. Phil didn’t understand the severity of the disease when he said on his March 5th show, that lupus was “not life threatening” and “easily controlled.”


    The truth is, lupus is difficult to diagnose, difficult to treat and can be life threatening. 90% of the cases are women and of those, African America, Hispanic/Latino and Native Americans are at greater risk. There’s no known cause, no test, no cure.


    This disease devastates those living with lupus and the family and friends of those individuals. I know, my life has been impacted by lupus. [PERSONALIZE YOUR STORY HERE!]


    Please help us increase awareness of lupus by featuring it on the Oprah Show.

    Thank you for your consideration.
