This new page will be edited by fifteen year-old, Hannah Tubbs.
"I am here to try and provide a voice for all the younger people struggling with an autoimmune disease like lupus, which for a teenager, is not an easy task let me tell ya!
Bottom line is that teens with lupus are simply not spoken for enough. I am here to offer a younger perspective and also share your thoughts and creative input in this new teenage lupus page we can call our own. Please do not feel hesitant to reach out!"
Hannah was diagnosed with lupus at a very young age and can relate to how other youngsters with lupus battle this disease at an early age.
The editor of The Lupus Magazine, Geoff Thomas, added, "I 'm really excited about introducing a teen specific page and Hannah is the perfect fit to edit this new page. Quite frankly, it's long over due."
Younger readers are welcome to contact Geoff and Hannah if they wish to contribute to "Teen Lupus - The Prose and Cons"
