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. 

We hope you'll join us for Fun Out the Sun! This is an indoor event that allows everyone to meet our staff, support group facilitators and members as we talk about the importance of mental and emotional health for people with lupus. Also, we will be partnering with Paws and Think Inc., who will be bringing therapy dogs for everyone to interact with. The event at IU Health Saxony Hospital, 13000 East 136th St (2nd floor, community rooms A and B) in Fishers is free and refreshments will be provided.

This event gives people with lupus an opportunity to interact with each other, our support groups, the therapy dogs and our staff while being indoors since being in the sun for a long period of time should be avoided for people with lupus.

Masks are required.

Online registration deadline is Thur, 6/24. We will be accepting call-in registrations in the office from 9:00 am-5:00 pm on Fri, 6/25. Please call the office at 317.225.4400. Walk-ins are allowed but for planning purposes, if possible, it would be helpful if you registered before the event. 

Children are welcome to attend with their parent(s).
