Whoopi Goldberg was honored for her work to improve the lives of people with lupus at the Lupus Foundation of America's annual Butterfly Gala in New York City!
It was a wonderful night filled with inspiration, as Four-time Grammy award winner India.Arie had the crowd swaying with a performance of her song There’s Hope: which a salute to the honorees and the hope they bring to people with lupus!
The Gala is all about brining attention on lupus, an autoimmune disease that affects 1.5 million Americans. Of those affected, they find it mostly to be women of childbearing age! Although lupus can be fatal, it frustratingly does not share the high profile of other diseases.
We're proud of all the work they're doing!
