New support group for lupus sufferers may form


Those interested in starting a support group for lupus patients and their families should call Sylvia Dowdy at (970) 418-8146. Dowdy, a Silverthorne resident who suffers from the disease, is trying to gauge interest in a community-wide group.Lupus is a disease that affects the immune system. There’s no cure, and about 85 percent of sufferers are women. Dowdy will have a table at the 9News Health Fair today at Summit High School, where she will answer questions and pass out information to those interested. The health fair starts at 7 a.m. and goes until 1 p.m.
