POP this Friday, May 18! Put on Purple Day is set to get even more people thinking about Lupus during this Lupus Awareness Month. Encourage everyone you know to wear something purple to celebrate all those with Lupus.

WebMD is going to be tweeting about POP on Thursday & Friday, and we'd love to have you post your photos of you wearing purple in this thread. If you can't get your photo to post here, you can post it to The Lupus Foundation's Facebook page or sent it to them via email. (If you post your photo to their Facebook page, be sure to say that you came from the fabulous WebMD Lupus Community!) You can also download a POP Toolkit from the Foundation's web page.

Members, share your answers to these questions with new folks who may be finding this board for the first time:

* Why is it so important to you to raise awareness about Lupus?

* What is the one thing you'd like others to understand about your life?

* Who YOU know that will be wearing purple to support you? Thank them here.

Thank you all for allowing us to be a part of this and help raise awareness.

Love seeing Dr. Swamy and staff POPping the purple on FB.

I am amazed with The Lupus Foundation's FB pics, purple was worn around the world!

Keep up the good work lending support, advice to one another and creating awareness!
