6 Years

On average, it takes nearly six years for people with lupus to be diagnosed, from the time they first notice their lupus symptoms.

1.5 Million Americans

The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that 1.5 million Americans, and at least five million people worldwide, have a form of lupus.


Lupus strikes mostly women of childbearing age. However, men, children, and teenagers develop lupus, too. Most people with lupus develop the disease between the ages of 15-44.

A Message from Lupus Foundation of America President & CEO: Standing in Solidarity with Black Americans:

I cannot fully relate and understand the pain and injustice that the black community has and continues to experience, but I can use my privilege and role as President and CEO to speak up and encourage change.

The horrific killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others are the latest in a continuous and deep-rooted pattern of injustice and violence towards Black Americans. We are heartbroken and outraged by this legacy of systemic racism that plagues generation after generation.

We must break this vicious cycle once and for all. 

As a nation, we must stand up, speak out and join the black community in actively demanding an end to racism, injustice and inequality.  

As a voice for the lupus community, a disease that disproportionately impacts Black women, we are committed to being part of the long-term solution, and re-affirm our commitment to addressing health equity and the disparities that impact Black Americans.

We are listening and learning how we can do more as an organization to end racial inequality in our society. Our work will not stop here. We will use our platforms and resources to elevate black voices, help eradicate injustice, and advocate for concrete change against systemic racism.

The Lupus Foundation of America is raising our voice in support of the black community – and we are here with you in the fight against racism and injustice.
