Hi Paul. I did change my Facebook picture to that of a butterfly and shared your message about World Lupus Day and your link. I do share facts about lupus with others and encourage them to also share with others. I also wore purple along with others and we posted pics individually of ourselves in support and unity for those with lupus on Facebook. We did these things to help raise awareness about this disease that most people know nothing about. Every little bit helps. Your interest and help in spreading awareness about lupus

is very much appreciated. Thanks!


Thank you so much for your support Mollydolly. It sounds like you were very active in spreading awareness.
