¡Adiós Lupus!™

Lupus is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with, a challenge to treat and is potentially fatal. The disease is difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are different from person to person and they can come and go. It can often take several years to receive an official diagnosis.

As the first official charity partner of Minor League Baseball’s Copa de la Diversión™ (“Copa”) Hispanic fan initiative, the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) developed the ¡Adiós Lupus!™ outreach campaign with the goal of increasing lupus awareness and reducing the time to diagnosis among Hispanics and all MiLB fans.

During select Copa games this season, the LFA’s national network of advocates are teaming up with MiLB and participating Copa teams to support the ¡Adiós Lupus! platform with public address announcements, in-game promotions and the distribution of LFA educational resources to help people navigate the challenges of this complex and devastating disease.
