Today, March 20, 2018 Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus joins LRA in educating our legislators on the need for lupus research funding.
Due to the efforts our efforts in 2010, Oregon joined other states in recognizing and raising awareness for the debilitating and painful disease of lupus. Now May is officially Lupus Awareness Month in Oregon.
May 10th is World Lupus Day
Join us in participating in the 15th annual observance of World Lupus Day. Lupus is a global health problem which knows no boundaries. It affects all nationalities, races, ethnicities and genders. To support World Lupus Awareness Day, wear teal and purple, and post your pictures on the Fighting Lupus Facebook page. Be sure to use #FightingLupus, #LupusAwareness and #WorldLupusDay on your posts.
May 10th – Lighting of the Morrison Bridge
Molly’s Funding Fighting Lupus has worked in partnership with the Willamette Light Brigade to bring awareness to those living with lupus. The Morrison Bridge in Portland, Oregon will shimmer in radiant teal and purple to reflect Lupus Awareness Month in May and World Lupus Day on May 10. Teal is the official color of Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus, and the bridge lighting honors those living with lupus.
All Month Long
