Natalie Lindsay-Smith

I became involved with the LFA, GOC after I was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) 19 years ago. I became a member and participated in the Walk for Lupus Now events. I have also enjoyed volunteering for the LFA, GOC at health fairs. In 2012, the LFA, GOC saw a growing need for the support of lupus patients in the Akron area, and I became a support group facilitator to meet that need.  I really enjoy being a group facilitator, meeting new people, listening as they share their experiences and words of encouragement sojourning through life with lupus. It is an honor and a pleasure to be a part of the LFA, GOC, providing help and support for lupus patients and their families in Akron.
