There is currently a thread on one of the facebook groups I follow (https://www.facebook.com/groups/20912928322/10153011133738323/?comment_id=10153011994383323¬if_t=group_comment_follow)
Basically it's saying that in America it's lupus awareness time (May is when they have an awareness month) yet in uk awareness month is October ---- alot of ppl think it's silly having it in October as that's when cancer awareness is. What do people think ? is it sufficient that we have World Lupus day in May or should we join with America and change when UK have awareness month? , does it help having a day in May and a Month in October and so raise Lupus profile twice a year?
Also it was said "I know cancer is always in everyone's thoughts as you can't go a single day without seeing x amount of adverts for it, but where is the advertising for lupus / autoimmune --- what do you think you would do if you could be head of advertising to try and get more awareness out there" ?
I thought it be interesting raising this for discussion
