This May Lupus Canada invites you to join us in helping to create awareness for all Canadians impacted by lupus. This Lupus Awareness Month let’s focus on making lupus visible and raising the voice of all those impacted by lupus. The time for change is now!

To launch Lupus Awareness Month, Lupus Canada is proud to present this year’s Lupus Awareness Video. By sharing the messages and amplifying the voices of Canadians living with lupus, we hope to demonstrate how complex this disease truly is and how by joining together we can make a difference! We are asking for YOU to help share our message across Canada. Lupus Canada thanks all the individuals who participated in the creation of this video.

Lupus Canada’s Disease of 1,000 Faces Campaign

Lupus Canada is continuing to gather pictures of Canadians living with lupus for our Disease of 1,000 Faces Campaign! Lupus Canada is hoping to gather 1,000 pictures of lupus warriors around the world by the end of the year. Share this campaign with your friends and through social media and help us reach our goal. Lupus is known as the “Disease of a Thousand Faces” due to its wide-ranging symptoms and ability to mimic other diseases. Join Lupus Canada by emailing a photograph of yourself to or by tagging Lupus Canada on social media.


Lupus Canada’s goal is to raise $2,022 this Lupus Awareness Month so that we can continue to work to provide reliable resources and foster awareness among Canadians about lupus. With your support we can make a difference.  Your support can improve the quality of life for people with lupus through research, education and advocacy. Help us continue to make an impact for lupus and those who live with this debilitating disease. Help us achieve our Lupus Awareness Month goal by donating here.
