My Purple Pledge Form

On average it takes a person 6 years to get diagnosed with lupus from time they first notice symptoms. 

The first step to reducing time to diagnosis is raising more awareness by encouraging others to learn more about lupus. 

Take this first step with us by taking the My Purple Pledge and continue spreading awareness throughout the year.
