Welcome

PuzzledButterfly_opt3Puzzled Butterfly is dedicated to improving the quality of life for lupus patients and their loved ones by providing support, educational outreach services, and promoting self-advocacy. We understand the isolation and fear lupus patients often feel when they are first diagnosed. We also recognize the impact the disease can have on other family members. Our education and support programs are designed to empower patients to actively participate in their own health care to hopefully improve disease outcome and enhance their quality of life.

The Lupus Research Institute reports “Lupus is one of America’s least recognized major diseases. There is 1.5 to 2 million Americans living with lupus; that’s 1 out of every 185 people. In fact, more people have lupus than AIDS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis combined; making it one of this country’s most prevalent medical conditions.” It is part of our mission to bring public awareness to this conundrum.

    I enjoyed knowing there is another place to get info about lupus. The name is so fitting for symptoms of lupus patients. Butterflies are beautiful n very delicate. Some of the symptoms causes pain from just a touch ; even the thought of a love one wanting to give a hug is devastating. It’s as if the butterfly losing silk. It’s sad to see a love one deal with lupus.
