Lupus: a civil war inside the body

Lupus Fun Run organizer Paul Mundy stands beside 13-year-old Kaela Dishion, an Avery Middle School seventh-grader, who was the run's youngest first place winner

Lupus strikes between 30 and 50 people per 100,000 every year, yet many people are unfamiliar with the disease and unaware of the harmful effects it can have. That unfamiliarity is one of the reasons Paul Mundy started the annual run/walk in memory of his sister Linda Jean Mundy, who died of lupus at 51.

Paul is the development and systems analyst for the Mark Twain Medical Center Hospital Foundation.
