Recently, twin sisters Jennie Gunhammar, a photographer, and, her sister, Jessie, a lecturer at the London School of Economics, both died within a year of each other of the autoimmune disease, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) aged just 35 (Jennie and Jessie pictured right). The story hit the UK headlines because Jennie’s long-term boyfriend, Andrew Clinch, has set up a charity in her name and held an art auction to raise money for a specialist unit at London’s St. Thomas’ Hospital.
