Put On Purple

Thank you for your interest in joining the Lupus Foundation of America, Memphis Area Chapter and thousands of people nationwide for Put On Purple Day on Friday, May 16, 2014.

Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth- an unpredictable and misunderstood autoimmune disease that ravages different parts of the body.  It is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with and a challenge to treat, in short, a cruel mystery.

Lupus is more pervasive and more severe than people think, and has an impact that the public doesn't realize.  Help us solve the cruel mystery of lupus by raising PUBLIC AWARENESS of this unpredictable and misunderstood disease, and rallying support for those who suffer from its brutal impact.  We can't do it alone, we need your support!
