¡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 during the 2020 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.

Note that in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the beginning of the 2020 season is currently delayed. Click here to read more from MiLB, and check back here for updates about the 2020 season as they become available.
