Lupus Awareness Day
“Be Kind; Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle you know nothing about."
~ Oft paraphrased quote from “Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush” , Ian MacLaren (the Reverend John Watson), c. 1894
Lupus erythematosus is a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in many parts of the body. One symptom associated with the disease is the classic malar rash (commonly known as a butterfly rash), which is reflected in the awareness symbol for Lupus, a butterfly. Lupus is one of many conditions falling in the category of "invisible illness," conditions that do not necessarily exhibit externally visible signs or symptoms to an outside observer. 🦋 💜
Lupus erythematosus is a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks healthy tissues. Symptoms of these diseases can affect many different body systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, and lungs. The most common and most severe form is systemic lupus erythematosus.
This tartan was created to raise awareness and funds for research. It was created after designer’s wife was diagnosed with Lupus in 2018 and registered with the agreement of the Lupus Foundation of America.
