Lupus In Color is launching a Holiday Pouch Drive for Lupus! This year, Lupus In Color is adopting the patients at Henrico Doctors Infusion Center to receive Holiday Pouches, filled with goodies.

I personally spend a lot of time there every month receiving chemo infusions and treatments for my own personal battle with lupus. I understand the importance of receiving items that can make your infusion more comfortable. Our goal is 50+ Pouches! Lupus In Color will fill each pouch with goodies to help make time at the infusion center just a little bit easier.

For as little as $10 you can sponsor 2 pouches for men and women who fight daily for their lives. It’s a small act of kindness that will go a long way.

Please take a moment and donate and help us help those who battle lupus daily.

Go Red For Women National Wear Red Day 

licgoredHeart disease is a major complication of lupus. It is now a leading cause of death among people with lupus. People with lupus have a significantly increased risk of premature coronary heart disease (CHD) or atherosclerosis, stroke and other cardiovascular-related conditions than those without lupus. Some studies suggest risks of people with lupus are more than 50 times that of the general population.

We invite everyone to wear RED to fight heart disease in women. Wearing red In February on National Wear Red Day, will help raise awareness for heart disease and remind women to be healthier today. Pass on the awareness!
