As part of our campaign for Lupus Awareness Month this October, we created and launched a brand new animated video called, ‘Lupus: An Invisible Monster’. The aim of the video is to demonstrate some of the effects of living with the disease as well as highlighting its often ‘invisible’ nature. The video is available to watch on the LUPUS UK homepage and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRTaK8hT8po.
The video has been very widely shared on social media and accumulated over 4,100 views in its first 24 hours. The feedback received so far has been overwhelmingly positive, a few highlights include:
- “Best video I’ve seen to explain how I feel on a daily basis”
- “This video sums lupus up perfectly. It starts just at the perfect part saying all lupus sufferers experience it differently…it’s so different in all of us; it’s like our finger print. No two people have the same. Very well done to the team for doing such an informative short video. Thanks.”
- “This is so accurate. Perfectly describes what lupus does to you physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally”
