The Walk to End Lupus Now takes place in nearly 60 cities across the country to raise money for lupus research and to increase lupus awareness. In Orlando, the walk will take place on May 20th at Lake Eola with check-in starting at 4:00 p.m. An estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer from lupus including 100,000 Floridians. Symptoms include headaches, extreme fatigue, hair loss, swollen joints, cognitive issues and other physical impairments. Lupus is sometimes called “the great imitator” because mimics the symptoms of other disorders.
