When & Where
Rays of Fortitude for Lupus
Rays of Fortitude is an organization dedicated to creating Lupus Awareness, promoting the education of Lupus, lending support those whose lives are affected by Lupus and advocating for a cure. Fortitude meaning to strengthen the mind to endure pain or adversity with courage. The purpose of Rays of Fortitude is not only to make people aware during Lupus Awareness Month, but 365 days a year. Rays of Fortitude is a subsidiary of Teen Upward Bound Inc., a non-profit organization ** (a copy of our 501 (3) (c) is available upon request).
Rays of Fortitude’s efforts are essential because, every day over 2 million Americans struggle with Lupus and its symptoms. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ in the body. Unfortunately two out of three Americans know little or nothing about Lupus and its symptoms, therefore making the awareness and support of lupus essential. Increased awareness and research will save the lives of many.
