Lupus affects 1.5 Million people in the US, which is more than cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis combined. More then 90 percent of people with lupus are women between the ages of 15 and 45. Lupus is the leading cause of premature cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and stroke among young women. Lupus is difficult to diagnose because its symptoms come and go, mimic those of other diseases, and there is no single laboratory test that can definitively identify the illness. The “Get Lucky for Lupus LA!” poker tournament and raises funds for Lupus LA, which promotes lupus research, awareness, and education, and serves the needs of people with lupus and their families in California. In previous years, the event has raised as much as a quarter of a million dollars for the cause.
