Tell us your story. This is the place on the LFA Website where you can share your personal story with others. We want to feature compelling, uplifting, and inspiring stories that will help others with lupus who may be facing challenges and need to hear from someone who has faced a similar situation. We have created three story areas.
Profiles in Lupus – This is our showcase of individuals who are making a difference in the world by helping others, demonstrating extraordinary strength, or providing strong leadership to find the causes and cure for lupus, or increasing public awareness and understanding of the disease.
Meeting Challenges – Here we feature individuals who have overcome great obstacles in their lives. There stories provide insight into ways others can meet challenges and thrive despite dealing with the daily struggles of lupus.
Transformations – Developing lupus can be a life alternating experience. Stories in this area are about people who have grabbed that lemon and squeezed it into lemonade. These are people whose lives were changed by lupus but they turned that change into positive energy and are now pursing other goals and ambitions.
This is a new online community that highlights inspirational stories of real patients. The website is a forum for people to relate their own personal stories of hope and survival. Sharing Miracles is the corresponding online community for the television show Sharing Miracles, a series of 30-minute programs that highlight the compelling and inspirations stories of real patients.
As part of its Patient Voices series, The New York Times website is featuring the stories of people from across the country who are affected by lupus. Using audio interviews and photos, Patient Voices seeks to give a glimpse into the life of someone living with lupus. The individuals featured are as diverse as the disease itself.
