This is a voluntary group founded in 2012. Our mission is to find more patients, family, and patient friends to join the Lupus Association Singapore - Zoom Talk and Meeting. "This will be our new normal."
Who Can Join Us?
All are welcome, including newly diagnosed veterans, medical personnel, nurses, Meetup, Instagram, Facebook members, and friends.
In 2008 - Haresh was diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which is the most common type of lupus. SLE is a chronic, autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues. Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is characterized by arterial or venous thrombosis. SLE and APS are frequently known as Brother & Sister. Importantly, lupus is about nine times more common in women than men.
Haresh feels a need to create public awareness about SLE/Lupus and APS, as many have not heard or have little knowledge about it, unlike common diseases such as cancer. It is also important for patients to explore ways to cope with the stress of suffering from this illness. He believes if lupus patients communicate with other lupus patients by Whatsapp or Zoom Q & A session, you will get a positive feeling and calmness in your minds. Then will be easier for you to battle your SLE/Lupus disease in a much better way.
Here are some Q&A sessions only for you. What is SLE/Lupus?
And if you're disabled and think you can't participate, think again. But, please take note for safety reasons, participants who are handicapped, please get help from your loved ones or your assistance. You will discover a new journey of life meeting new friends.
Every year in the month of 10th MAY is World Lupus Awareness Day for Singapore.
I thought to let you know and this Lupus Meetup was founded in 2012. The most important information; patient knows that there is no cure for autoimmune illnesses. But there is a medical treatment by Rheumatology medical doctors for us to the survivor on the Earth. Thanks, God!
