What are you doing for Lupus Awareness Month?

The month of May is Lupus Awareness Month, with World Lupus Day on May 10th. It’s a great time to raise awareness about lupus.

Things you can do:

– Tell Lupus off by creating a Dear Lupus video

The Lupus run Calgary keep up the good work ladies. Nice to see Julia Roberts helping out.

– Join the Lupus Foundation of America and put on the purple this month

– Change your profile pics/ banners/ headers for the month. The LFA has a bunch of images you can use, as does the Lupus Research Insititute and the Molly’s Fund website.

– Share your story here on Life Despite Lupus – send me your story and I’ll post them here on May 10th

– Join the LRI’s Power of 10 initiative to support lupus research

  1. I’m trying to do a post a day on my own blog, as well as posting daily facts to my facebook page, and my personal facebook page about Lupus. I’m working on my own Dear Lupus video and will submit it when I’m finished. I’ll also be participating in Put on Purple Day and various other things as I think of them. Doing everything I can think of to raise awareness. I even told my therapist it was Lupus Awareness month today. 🙂

  2. I submitted my “Dear Lupus” video this weekend. Spoiler Alert/No Talent Warning: I attempt to sing a couple lines of “You don’t own me….” Anything for the cause, right?
