In a press release from the Lupus Foundation, the disease is described as one in which the body’s immune system is out of balance, causing damage to any of the organ systems. While lupus can strike anyone, 90 percent of those living with lupus are women, with women of color at especially high risk. Experts say that while lupus can be disabling and even fatal, the disease can be managed in most cases through aggressive medical treatment and lifestyle changes. The cause of lupus is unknown.

The event Saturday at Quincy Junior High runs from 9 a.m. till noon. To register or for more information, call 800-958-7876 or go to lfaheartland.org.
