May 25 Lupus Fact
The butterfly is the symbol for lupus. Although it is a beautiful symbol, the disease itself is very difficult to live with. The butterfly became the symbol because of the malar rash that presents itself on the faces of lupus warriors. It is called the lupus butterfly rash because of its butterfly-like shape on the bridge of the nose and cheekbones. These rashes are usually red or purple in color in either a blotchy pattern or completely red over the affected area, and can be flat or raised in nature.
This is your twenty-fifth butterfly of hope.
We need awareness and a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
