Providing Answers, Support and Hope in Indiana
This is my chapter   |   

The philosophy of our 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 help develop the best coping strategies to reduce a stress that often accompanies living with a chronic illness.
