One Patient's Positive Perspectives

Lupus Awareness Month

ToolkitLupus Awareness Month 2014 has now drawn to a close, with a full 31 days of heightened lupus awareness now behind us, and eleven months ahead until Lupus Awareness Month 2015.  Now what?  Does that mean we should stop our efforts and wait for May, 2015 to begin lupus awareness activities again?

Of course not!  So, what comes next?

The Lupus Foundation of America has some outstanding lupus awareness resources that will help you all year to help increase understanding of lupus.  Check out their web page for the Awareness Tool Kit for more things you can use anytime.

In the Tool Kit, there is an outstanding one-page Fact Sheet about Lupus:

However, the Lupus Foundation of America has these conditions on their use:

  1. I so agree with you. I even wrote a post about this same issue. Basically saying, lupus does not take a month or day day off, so we can’t afford to either. Continue the awareness June 1 and so on.
