Dear Friend,

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”– Desmond Tutu

We often talk about people living with lupus, along with their families, friends, and caregivers as a part of our lupus community here in Georgia. As a community, our lupus warriors band together with the Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter (LFAGA) staff and board, trained volunteer leaders, and community partners, working together to provide a comprehensive support network for people living with lupus. It’s from these collaborative efforts that we hear the most compelling and humbling stories about how lupus affects individuals and families.

This year more than ever has provided exciting opportunities for growth.

  • Our return to in-person programs and events has given lupus warriors the chance to connect with each other. More than 500 attended programs and more than 6,000 attended our walks and Gala. These connections and shared experiences are essential to building relationships in our lupus community.
  • We continue to expand our presence on HBCU campuses across Georgia as we make young people aware of the signs and symptoms of lupus.
    •    Our Patient Navigator continues to provide the patients at the Grady Lupus Clinic and the Emory University Midtown Nephritis Clinic with resources and guidance. This program has been responsible for a significant drop in the no-show rate at the clinics.
    •    As a collaborative partner in the Office of Minority Health funded Deep South Health Equity Project, we provided clinical trial education to more than 100 people living with Lupus and Georgia.
    •    Our Emergency Financial Assistance continues to be a critical resource for those most in need.
    •    Our 2023 Communications Playbook funded through a grant from the Georgia Council on Lupus Education and Awareness (GCLEA) provides a strategic framework for the LFAGA to reach lupus constituents across Georgia in alignment with the national LFA priorities and goals.

The LFAGA encounters people living with lupus at every step in their journeys. From the discovery of symptoms that don’t seem to make any sense, diagnosis, and treatment, to acceptance and advocacy, we are here every step of the way providing resources, education, support, and emergency medical financial assistance if needed.

Please support our Chapter and the families fighting lupus, helping us to help others by giving a year end contribution. Your contribution of $50, $100, $250, $500, or more will ensure that together, we work towards a brighter future for all those living with lupus.

We thank you in advance for your generosity, continued financial support, and for being a part of our world. Best wishes during this Holiday season and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Sincerely,

LFAGA Board of Directors and Staff
