Lupus Awareness Month 2020: #GoPurpleMonth
May is Lupus Awareness Month, go purple with us each day as we learn more from the community, and raise awareness about all things lupus. It's too often assumed that people living with lupus don't need help and support. Our community members show that support every awareness month, and every day of the year.
We want to help others understand the challenges and symptoms, while also teaching how to best provide a helping hand and support. Keep reading to discover ways that you can join us this month in spreading Lupus awareness.
Different ways to connect
1. Do your homework (& win a prize!)
We have plenty of prizes to give away, and one lucky community member will have a chance to win our flare care package! Keep a lookout each week for clues and announcements on how to win (#GoPurpleMonth).
2. Join the discussion
Ask a question and provide support in our community Q&As. Spread awareness by sharing your personal story with us. How did you feel getting diagnosed? What was the process like? How has your life changed since your diagnosis?
3. Spread the word online, change your profile picture
One of the easiest ways to spread awareness about lupus is by updating your profile picture on Facebook. We made a custom Facebook frame (pictured below) for you to add to your current Facebook profile picture. Click here and follow the step-by-step instructions if you'd like to add it to your profile picture.
4. Share a story
Spread Lupus awareness by sharing your personal story with us. How did you feel getting diagnosed? What was the process like? How has your life changed since your diagnosis?
5. Connect with us on social
Though we are an online community, sharing your story with others can have an even more significant impact. It puts a face to lupus, and that's what this month is all about.
