Mayor Don Keil proclaims May 2oth ´Put on Purple Day'
SEGUIN, Texas – May 20th, 2016 is officially ‘Put on Purple Day’ in the City of Seguin. Recently, Mayor Don Keil joined the area Lupus advocate to sign the proclamation.
“Lupus is very difficult to diagnose due to symptoms that mirror other diseases. Patients need a lot of caring support to deal with the terrible impact of living with Lupus,” said Angelica Garza, Field Services Director, Lone Star Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America.
Garza says that by wearing purple you are showing unified support for the patients and their families. It’s estimated that more 1.5 million Americans suffer from the chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease. ###
