The organization’s youth ambassador Sarah Polito and Executive Director Deborah Nigro stress that to raise awareness of lupus, more people need to speak out about the disease. Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive tackle Willie Colon explains how his mother found great comfort in the support she received from the lupus community.
