The busy entertainer lends a hand to promote awareness about the immune disease
Entertainer Nick Cannon has teamed up with the National Medical Association to raise awareness of lupus nephritis. Lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues, can affect many different body systems, including your joints, heart, skin, lungs, kidneys and brain. There is no cure, but treatment can help control the symptoms.
Cannon, diagnosed with lupus nephritis in 2012, is featured in a new video to increase awareness about clinical trials and options for lupus nephritis studies.
