March is Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month

March marks Autoimmune Awareness Month, a time dedicated to rallying support, spreading knowledge, and fostering a community united against autoimmune diseases. These conditions, often invisible to the naked eye, impact millions worldwide, affecting their quality of life in profound ways. At Indie Lee, we're committed not just to nurturing your skin but also to supporting wellness journeys, especially for those navigating the challenges of autoimmune diseases.

The Importance of Awareness:

Autoimmune diseases are as diverse as the individuals they touch, ranging from Type 1 Diabetes to Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, MS, Crohn’s, and beyond. Despite their prevalence, they often go unrecognized, leading to delayed diagnoses and treatments. Raising awareness is crucial for:

  • Early Detection: Educating the public on symptoms can lead to earlier diagnoses, improving outcomes.
  • Support and Understanding: Reducing stigma and fostering empathy for those affected.
  • Advancing Research: Highlighting the need for more research and better treatments.

Indie Lee's Commitment:

This March, I’m taking my commitment to the next level. As an autoimmune thriver and member of the Autoimmune Association’s Board of Directors, I will be traveling to Washington D.C. in the first week of March for a Congressional fly-in. Our goal? To advocate directly to our congressmen and congresswomen for legislative support that addresses the needs of the autoimmune community. We believe in the power of voice, advocacy, and legislation to bring about change that can transform lives.
