Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease that is often called "The Great Imitator" because it masks around multiple debilitating conditions. Do you know the signs and symptoms of lupus? Learn them and share your concerns with your doctor.

The Louisiana Lupus Foundation is here to help the citizens of Louisiana who are living with lupus. The Louisiana Lupus Foundation is the largest group in Louisiana and South Mississippi serving thousands of persons each year. Support group leaders in local areas take an active role in our outreach along with volunteers who carry out the mission and purpose of the foundation on a daily bases. On this site, we will share news from the support groups, tips for living with lupus, physician referrals, event information, and the status of the $5 million research funding for the Lupus Research Program at the Department of Defense. We will also share insight from our board of directors. We invite you to join us in celebrating over42 years of support and friendship.

  • Delta Sigma Theta sorority at Xavier University of Louisiana (NOLA) celebrated the life of their beloved sorority sister, Dannielle Foster (1988 - 2011) on Saturday, November 9, 2019 during Homecoming. She lost her battle with Lupus October 31, 2011. The sorority line, led by Ariel Johnson, presented Foundation members, Henrietta Jackson and Sharon Johnson with a check, (pictured on the right) in the amount of $3,500.00 in honor of Dannielle, with her mother, Lois Foster (in the brown jacket) looking on. 

    63% of Americans surveyed knew little or nothing about Lupus.  As a community, we can join forces to raise awareness and support those living wth Lupus.  With increased awareness and advocacy, we can change the trajectory of this disease.  By reciting the pledge to the right, we are taking a giant leap forward to improve the health outcomes of people who are disparately impacted by Lupus.

       ​I PLEDGE TO:

  • Continue to educate myself about the signs and symptoms of Lupus;
  • Raise awareness in my community and share thesigns and symptoms of Lupus;
  • ​Encourage others to know their staqtus by talking to their healthcare providers; 
Can't spend a dime? 
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.
Make a single or monthly donation to the Louisiana Lupus Foundation.

Together, we can make a difference

  • Advocate for the improvement of screening and treatment for Lupus among high-risk populations;
  • Support my brothers and sisters living with Lupus to have a positive influence on their well-being; and
  • Find pathways of partnership and service with the local organization in my city.

We exist to end needless suffering

While you can volunteer with us directly, even traveling to provide needy families with materials and education, there's much you can do on your own. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, hosting events, buying gifts, and involving your school or company in making life better for people with lupus.


Join one of our theLouisiana Lupus Foundation's support groups and connect with friends who can meet with family members, make visits to the hospital, explain patient information, and offer referrals to help eliminate some of the limits--and pain--of living with lupus.
