Support group leaders in local areas take on 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 complications, physicians 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 celebrating40 years of support and friendship.
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.
