Walk For Lupus was founded by Haresh as he’s diagnosed with SLE/lupus & APS illnesses. After seven years later the group named changed to Lupus Meetup Singapore.
He feels that there is a need to create public awareness about SLE/Lupus, as few have heard of or have 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 SLE/Lupus illness. He believes lupus patients gathering will give you a positive feeling and calmness in your mind, and you will be able to battle with your SLE/Lupus disease much better.
Here are some Q&A sessions only for you. What is SLE/Lupus?
