Butterfly Day

Five years ago today a very brave blogger (she was yet to be a blogger but she was already brave) was diagnosed with Lupus. The blogger? Rachel of Mon Polkadot Cheri.

Earlier this week she asked fellow bloggers to raise awareness of the illness which affects the immune systems of sufferers and as such, a Lupies’ immune system cannot differentiate between what should be in the body and what shouldn’t. This means that the immune system starts to attack bone marrow, tissue, organs and muscle. There is no cure for Lupus but it can be controlled.

The symbol of Lupus is a butterfly as people who have Lupus often have a red rash across their nose and cheeks that resembles a butterfly. So today Rachel has declared Butterfly Day to raise awareness of the illness.

I have been wearing the above ring today, to show my support, along with many other bloggers, including Leia of Leia’s Delights.

Visit Rachel’s blog to show your support.
