Lupus is an awful autoimmune disease that has no known cause, and no known cure.

The Lupus Association of Tasmania aims to raise awareness of this often-forgotten illness in the state, and bring affected people together.

Barbara from Zeehan calls Brian Carlton to tell him about the new awareness campaign for Lupus, and puts the call out for people to attend her support group on the West Coast.

If you would like to get in touch with Barbara about the support group, you can call her on 0419 724 384.
