    There is a commercial playing in Montana, usually during the evening news. 2 variations of it, both women, one at the doctor's office, the other on the steps of a college while an off camera voice lists symptoms then zooms on the gal who looks directly at the camera with a horrified look on her face and asks "could I have Lupus?" Has been playing her for about a year now. I mentioned it to my rheumy and he hadn't seen it but was going to be on the look out for it.

    I heard there was funding being put towards commercials but I havent seen any yet and no one has told me they have (which they would if they saw one lol) so I guess just certain areas are getting to see them so far? I think its great. Everytime I see a commercial dealing with RA I wonder why there arent lupus commercials too.

    Lupus was mentioned on The View this morning during their "Hot Topics" section and there is a page on their website. THANK you to the View, and to Whoppi, for shedding a little light on this subject

    I was watching and I cheered for Whoopi!
    Does she have a loved one with Lupus?
    I love Whoopi!
