Lupus is an unpredictable and misunderstood autoimmune disease that ravages different parts of the body. It is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with, and a challenge to treat. Lupus is a cruel mystery because it is hidden from view and undefined, has a range of symptoms, strikes without warning, and has no known cause and no known cure.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, and advocacy. In fulfilling our mission, we provide a variety of different programs and services for lupus patients and their support systems. If you need to speak with us, call the office at 1 (888) NO-LUPUS.
We offer groups in-person and over the phone as a place where people can share their experiences and ask questions. Most discussions focus on the "how-to's" of living with a chronic illness.
These "Lupus 101" classes cover basic information about managing the disease and living well. This is also a great way to stay up-to-date on the most recent lupus information.
