Lupus Village is an education site that aims to serve as a hub for Lupus Take 5. A 5-week accelerated program that focuses on the Big 5 affected areas of life: Family, Friends, Fitness, Finance, and Fun. This became the brainchild and labor of love from a Lupus sufferer. It is 6 years of hardship, pain, trial by fire, and valuable lessons in a condensed relatable easy to follow experience aimed at individuals who want to avoid the pricey pitfalls and downsides of this disease and experience positive quality living.
We are a networking site of like-minded individuals all talking the same path toward priceless quality life and helping one another every step of the way! It takes a village to raise awareness and it takes people who know the song of the storm in order to serve as pied pipers towards that awareness. As a Lupus survivor, if I could take 6 painful years of broken relationships irretrievably broken by the misunderstanding of myself and my disease and put it in a 5-week program so someone else can avoid those same pains, then I have done something. If I can take the tens of thousands of dollars I wasted on manic spending, hospital bills, gifts, trips, and journeys unexplored and allow someone else to invest in what makes them truly happy, then I have changed a life. The best part about all of this is it’s built off knowing I can’t do it by myself, so YOU and YOUR LUPUS NEIGHBOR are a key component to really making this soar!
