Help LFA-Iowa Advance Its Mission Work
When you give to patient services, you are providing quality programming that directly impacts the patient. Programming initiatives include: education, awareness, support, workshops, teleconferences and resources for new patients regarding lupus.
We lead scientific initiatives, fund lupus researchers, and advocate for expanded public and private investment in research on lupus. We bring down barriers that have impeded progress in lupus research and we stimulate the development of new more tolerable and effective lupus treatments.
When you give to our wellness initiatives programming you are directly contributing to improving the patient's quality of life. We offer resources, educational materials, and direct access to experts in the field of whole health. We believe integrated care can reduce stress and lower the risk of what is commonly known by lupus patients as an, "acute flare." An "acute flare" is when the immune system actively attacks good tissue in the body and serious symptoms arise.
When you give to the operating fund you are ensuring LFA-Iowa maintains its presence in Iowa. The operating fund supports a modest office and a single staff person.
Hope Scholarship Fund
When you give to the Hope Scholarship Fund you are giving an opportunity to a high school graduate living with lupus a chance to apply for a scholarship. This fund is also available for lupus patients that must retake course work due to severe illnesses during a semester.
When you give to Camp Lupus you are providing the opportunity for pre-teens and teens to come together and participate in activities, education, and support for a variety of lupus topics.
