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

This tartan and the accompanying artwork were created to raise awareness and funds for research for Lupus erythematosus, a group of autoimmune diseases where the immune system erroneously targets healthy tissues throughout the body. A notable symptom is the classic malar rash, often referred to as a butterfly rash, which has inspired the butterfly symbol used for lupus awareness. Lupus falls under the category of "invisible illnesses," which are conditions that don't always show visible signs or symptoms to an observer, making them difficult to detect externally. 🦋 💜 💙 ❤️ 🦋

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.
