Foundation Rings the New York Stock Exchange Opening Bell for Lupus Awareness Month

The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation sounds the call for Life Without Lupus® as our newest Board member Tuhina De O’Connor rings the Opening Bell this morning at the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street. Joining Tuhina are just a few members of the lupus community that we have served for more than four decades.

Watch the video of the ceremony as it is being seen by 100 million people worldwide throughout the day!

The timing for this celebration could not be more appropriate during May Lupus Awareness Month. For 2013, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and our national Lupus Research Institute are spotlighting the many successes of our researchers, healthcare providers, patients and their family and friends who are making a major difference in lupus research and care throughout the city, the nation and the world.

Follow the advice of CNBC-TV newscaster Jim Cramer who urged his “Squawk on the Street” viewers watching this morning to contribute to the lupus cause -- DONATE to the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation.
