The main goal of Lupus In Color is to give positive hope to lupus warriors through love and encouragement, positive support and interactions and exemplary empowered awareness and advocacy.
Lupus In Color’s main purpose is to GENERATE LUPUS AWARENESS AND PROVIDE ENCOURAGING SUPPORT FOR A DISEASE THAT OFTEN GOES UNRECOGNIZED IN THE PUBLIC EYE.
The Lupus Research Institute reports “Lupus is one of America’s least recognized major diseases. Almost 2 million Americans one out of every 185 have lupus. In fact, more Americans have lupus than cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, or AIDS, making it one of this country’s most prevalent medical problems.”
However, while lupus is widespread, awareness and accurate knowledge about it lag behind many other illnesses. Lupus is on the rise, and scientists don’t know exactly why.
