Double Your Impact to Support Pediatric Lupus Research

Tens of thousands of children and adolescents in the United States today are dealing with lupus. Doctors who treat children with lupus must rely on research conducted in adults to make tough decisions about treatments and care. In every way, the need to expand clinical and basic research developments for childhood lupus is increasingly urgent.

Through July 31, all donations up to $75,000 will be matched by a private foundation. Your gift will have double the impact to support the Michael Jon Barlin Pediatric Research Program, and other research, advocacy and education initiatives to support those living with lupus.

Donate Now

The Michael Jon Barlin Pediatric Research Program was established in 2006 and the Lupus Foundation of America became the first and only lupus advocacy organization in the United States with a dedicated childhood lupus research agenda. Through this program, the Foundation provides funding to facilitate childhood lupus research in areas where there is the greatest need, including lupus nephritis and neuropsychiatric lupus.
