Posted on October 07, 2016

MyLupusTeam launched in August 2014 with just 10 members in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, MyLupusTeam has grown to more than 127,000 members, making it the largest social network in the world for those living with lupus.

We believe that when you are diagnosed with lupus, getting perspective and connecting with others with lupus can help you better manage your life with the disease. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and again on MyLupusTeam that we think will help you better control your lupus.
