Lupus learning

Diwa party-list Rep. Emmeline Aglipay-Villar (second from right) points out a detail on a poster to Leyte 4th District Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez about the Hope For Lupus Foundation, which Villar -- a lupus survivor herself -- founded. The lady lawmakers opened the Foundation's butterfly exhibit at Glorietta 3 in Makati City along with Villarís husband, Public Works Secretary Mark Villar (background) and actress Patricia Javier. The event aimed to raise awareness on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE or simply lupus), a potentially fatal autoimmune disease that still has no cure. Ey Acasio
