It was not talked about much then (early 70’s). She just passed away from lung cancer 4 yr ago. I was diaignosed in 2009, with SLE, Fibro and RA. Iwanted to know as much as I could about all.

    • Wheatums, Thank you so much for your visit to Lupus Adventures, and sharing your comment about this post. There was no Google or Internet when I was diagnosed, so it was very hard then, over twenty years ago, to find out about lupus. LA
