Throughout May, we are tweeting and posting about our promotions, special guests and the awesome prizes that we will be giving away, all in preparation for our World Lupus Day Rally! |
Although today, May 10th, is the official World Lupus Day, we will be observing locally in Philadelphia on Tuesday, May 24th with our World Lupus Day Rally in LOVE Park! We will be in the park from 12-2pm handing out literature and enjoying the entertainment provided by the Decades Dance Band! Come out and join us in making some noise for lupus!
There is still an urgent need for increased awareness for lupus. It's estimated that 80 percent of the public know little or nothing about lupus. This Lupus Awareness Month, the Lupus Foundation of America, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter urges Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania residents to get the facts about lupus, and share their lupus knowledge with others by doing at least one thing to raise awareness. Every day throughout May the LFA will feature different facts about lupus using video, social media, and fliers to educate the public about the potentially life-threatening and serious consequences experienced by an estimated 1.5 million Americans.
Chef Dana Herbert - winner of TLC's Next Great Baker and owner and pastry chef of Desserts by Dana will make a special appearance at our World Lupus Day Rally!
