Lupus Bahamas 242 is a non-profit group providing support and information for persons in The Bahamas living with lupus. Their goal is also to increase awareness in The Bahamas.
According to the group's facebook page their mission is to reveal the secrets of this chronic disease that has touched so many in our nation, by finding and sharing information and providing support to those living with lupus, their families and friends.
The group's vision is to spread the word in the Bahamas through meetings, community outreach, newsletters, articles, paraphernalia and fundraising activities, creating awareness and contributing to the cure.
The group meets every month to connect and share. They also discuss topics related to living with lupus. Join them every third Thursday in the month at 6:30 p.m. at St. Matthew's Anglican Parish Hall.
Since officially coming on stream in September 2011 the group has done alot of various events and has been making some great strides to their goals.
In November 2012 they held a walk-a-thon in aid of the global research to fight against the disease and just recently in December 2012 they officially launched their newest campaign called the Faces of Lupus Bahamas 242 Calendar. They've put faces to this illness and are sharing the stories of the amazing ladies featured. The calendars are $15 each and are currently on sale.
