This May, across the country and around the globe,, there will be seminars, classes, walks and runs to raise awareness of lupus. Many peyote have not heard of lupus, the disease our immune systems that we deal with daily, sometimes hourly. If we don’t deal with it, it deals with us!! Right now, lupus is largely known as an orphan disease, because few people know if it, or what they know can be measured in a thimble.
Our goal needs to be to raise awareness of lupus, so people no longer assume (incorrectly so), that “you don’t look sick! We want to raise awareness, not so others feel sorry for our illness, but so that dollars are donated and spent on research; RESEARCH TO FIND A CURE!
So, even though this notification more than 4 months before lupus awareness month cthis May, there is no time like the present to begin planning for the future! Remember, we raise awareness all year long, 365/7, but there is a concerted effort and push made in May. Stay tuned to this and all lupus blogs and newspapers for up to date coverage and this year, BECOME INVOLVED.!
