Connect: You Are Not Alone
One of the ways the Lupus Foundation of America, Florida Chapter accomplishes its mission to solve the cruel mystery of lupus is by providing lupus patients and their caregiver's ways to connect with others impacted by lupus.
LFA support groups 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 this chronic illness. Knowing that others share this journey offers comfort and reassurance. Our support groups encourage and accept people as they are and provide a comfortable learning environment to help attendees develop the best coping strategies to reduce the stress that often accompanies living with lupus.
An online lupus community where individuals with lupus and their loved ones can engage with others like them to share experiences, find emotional support and discuss practical insights for coping with the daily challenges of the disease. LupusConnect is an easy-to-use, online platform that encourages its community members to ask questions, reply to posts and read about others' experiences in a safe and comforting community.
Walk to End Lupus Now events are conducted nationwide by the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) and its national network to connect those impacted by lupus and raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for those who suffer from its brutal impact.
