2023 Illumination Campaign

Fibromyalgia Awareness Month and Fibromyalgia Awareness Day are focused on raising awareness for our chronic and debilitating condition. FAC will be promoting Awareness throughout the month but our highlight campaign will be the “2023 Illumination Campaign” on May 12th.

Last year, 2022, marked FAC’s first National Campaign to shine a light on fibromyalgia. We had 90 buildings and landmarks across the country illuminated purple on May 12th in recognition of all Canadians living with fibromyalgia.

As of April 24, 2023, this year’s Illumination Campaign has 120 buildings and landmarks supporting “Making Fibromyalgia Visible” by lighting up purple for people with our illness. Many municipalities are issuing proclamations, recognizing May 12th as Fibromyalgia Awareness Day in their province, city, town and villages.
