Raise Awareness, Help Those with Lupus

March 29, 2013

(Editor’s note: The Hollis Brookline Middle School seventh-grade English classes were assigned a project to research a topic of importance to them and, once researched, the students had to craft a persuasive email to someone who could support their research. The project was designed to teach persuasive writing skills, and teach students how to communicate effectively through email.)

To the Editor:

My name is Jonathan and I am a seventh-grade student at HBMS. I am writing this email because of a disease that my mom was diagnosed with six years ago. That disease’s name is lupus. I believe more people should know of it. Most people I talk to have never even heard of it. Lupus is a terrible disease to live with and more people should be aware of it.

It obviously isn’t seen as much as cancer. Symptoms of this disease include rashes, hair loss, joint pain and fevers. (Robert A. Norman, “Vital signs.” Discover Vol. 28, Issue 5:p28. Ebsco. Web. Feb. 19, 2013.)
