Lupus affects around 1.5 million people in America, most of which are women. In this video from Sambusa 5 Samurai, vlogger Mo interviews lupus patient Sidnae about living with the condition.

Find out why support for lupus patients is so important.

Sidnae starts by explaining all the things that lupus isn’t: it’s not contagious and it’s not cancerous. She then goes on to describe what lupus is, sharing her symptoms, the medications and treatments she’s used over the years, how she deals with lupus flares, how exercise helps her keep on top of the disease, and how important her support network is.

Our resident columnist, Kellie McRae writes about how important support groups are for lupus patients.
