Molly's Fund Events for Lupus Awareness Month

      In Oregon and Washington - lupus is more common than muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, leukemia and cystic fibrosis combined - yet few know this fact. Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus, based in Portland, has been on the frontlines of bringing the devastating disease out of the shadows and into the light. Molly's Fund founder Molly McCabe, herself a lupus survivor, joined us to talk about the disease and a few of the ways you can help support the fight in the month ahead.
