May 17, Wednesday: Wellness - What are you doing to feel well today? Please personalize the below template post. IgA Nephropathy can sometimes make life feel uncontrollable, but there are some things we can control, for example:

  • Enjoyable movement (a stretch, a walk, dancing to a favorite song) 
  • Eating food that’s right for us individually
  • Checking in with ourselves
  • Meditating

Share Your Wellness Activity

(Your choice of wellness activity) is what I’m doing today to make myself feel well this #IgANAware Wellness Wednesday. Prioritizing how I feel helps me connect with my body and focus on what I can control. #IgANDay #IgANephropathy. @IGANFoundation”

May 18, Thursday: Thank those who care - Between your care team, care partners, and medical providers, a lot goes into the care that sustains us as we live with IgA Nephropathy. Take this opportunity to express your appreciation to them!

May 19, Friday: Rally cry

“When @IGANFoundation was created, there were no resources to treat #IgANephropathy. Now, there are 2 approved FDA treatments and many clinical trials in the works. Our community is strong and full of hope—here’s to even more progress in the future! #IgANDay #IgANAware”
