Gibson stated, "Several years ago, they said 20% of 1.5 million Americans with Lupus are passing away due to complications or lack of knowledge and those numbers grow larger each year. The children are our future. We at the Gibson Lupus ARC are hosting our 1st Annual Children's Fashion Show to raise Lupus & Autoimmune disease awareness for our children red carpet style.
