Lupus Awareness Month

A Fierce Commitment to Improving the Lives of Lupus Patients

Lupus Canada being the only national organization focused on lupus research, advocacy, awareness, and education in Canada, we’re fiercely committed to improving the lives of people living with lupus, their families, and their loved ones by investing in initiatives that bring us closer to dedicated treatments and ultimately a cure.

Shining a light on lupus

“Michelle Gazze, a Winnipeg woman whose family came from Guyana, was diagnosed with lupus six years ago at age 30.

She shared her story leading up to World Lupus Day, on May 10. She wants to educate members of racialized communities to result in earlier diagnosis and treatment of the disease.”

During Lupus Awareness Month, Lupus Canada is working tirelessly to raise awareness of lupus, advocate for those impacted by this debilitating disease, support researchers in their quest to find a cure, and to help those with lupus live well and have equitable access to a diversity of treatments until one day a cure is found.

With the help of folks like Ms. Roberts and the article featured on we are able to put a spotlight on this debilitating disease.

We are excited to share that the article has also been published on the following sites: National Post, Edmonton Journal, Ottawa Citizen, Regina Leader-Post, London Free Press, Calgary Herald, Winnipeg Sun, Vancouver Sun, The Star Phoenix, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Sun, Edmonton Sun and Canoe, creating the much needed awareness for lupus.
