"I'm pleased to once again help educate my colleagues in state government about lupus. I advocate in memory of my aunt, who was afflicted by this devastating autoimmune disease. Lupus affects more than 1.5 million Americans - 100,000 of them live right here in New York. And yet, there's so much we still don't know about it. We need to find a way to diagnose the disease quicker, to treat it effectively and to wipe it out completely." - Sen. Joe Griffo
