may month

Due to the efforts of Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus, in 2010, Oregon joined other states in recognizing the debilitating and painful disease of lupus – and now May is officially Lupus Awareness Month in Oregon.  

World Lupus Day

Join us in participating in the 14th annual observance of World Lupus Day. Lupus is a global health problem which knows no boundaries. It affects all nationalities, races, ethnicities and genders.

6th Annual Butterfly Walk

May 13

Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus hosted the 6th Annual Butterfly Walk on May 13, 2017 at Oaks Park in Portland, Oregon. This fabulously fun 1k to 3k route was an inspiring opportunity to unite as a community in celebration of individuals and families living with lupus. With your participation and support, you helped Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus in our ability to provide critical programs to those living with lupus. Every step you took was personal. 

Together, we are helping to ensure no one has to face this disease alone.
