Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, and advocacy. In fulfilling our mission, we run and provide a variety of different programs and services for lupus patients and their support systems.
No one should have to face the suffering, frustration, and uncertainty of lupus alone.

The philosophy of LFA support groups is to provide a warm and caring environment where people with lupus, their family members, caregivers, and loved ones can share their experiences, methods of coping, and insights into living with lupus. LFA support groups encourage and accept people as they are and provide a comfortable learning environment to help them develop the best coping strategies to reduce stress that often accompanies living with a chronic illness.
