Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects 1 in 1,000 Canadians. With lupus, the immune system can attack any organ in the body and if left untreated, it can be fatal.  Symptoms include extreme fatigue, fever, skin rashes, sun sensitivity, or persistent flu-like symptoms with blood abnormalities. Lupus often goes undetected
