Spreading Lupus Awareness One Butterfly at a time
Let this butterfly flutter all over cyberspace!
May 13th Lupus Fact
Lupus can cause a phenomenon, known as Raynaud’s syndrome. This condition restricts blood flow to the extremities, most notably the fingers and the toes. When blood flow is reduced to these parts of the body, they can become extremely cold and discolored. Fingers and toes might appear bluish or purplish in color, or they can completely lose color and become completely white. They’ll also have a numbing sensation. This is the result of a lack of oxygenated blood flowing to these parts of the body. When blood rushes back to them, they can become intensely hot, and they can tingle and throb.
This is your thirteenth Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
