Heroes come in many forms. Here at the Lupus Foundation of America, Heartland Chapter our heroes are people living with lupus who struggle every day to live with this mysterious and confusing autoimmune disease.
We consider our donors to be our Circle of Heroes. Individuals and corporations who give generously to build a circle of caring and support around people with lupus so they know they are not alone.
- Donors who understand that lupus is a life-long disease with no known cause or cure.
- Donors who are committed to investing in research that will lead to better treatments and one day, a cure for lupus.
- Donors who know that people with lupus have wide-ranging needs and the Lupus Foundation of America has the unmatched ability to meet these needs.
