Caregivers Need a Support System Too

November is National Caregiving Month. Caring for a loved one who is ill is often challenging, but you should not try to take on being a caregiver independently. By identifying people in your life who can be reliable sources of support and comfort, you can be reassured that there is someone to turn to when you need help.

Navigating lupus made it clear how much work needs to be done. I knew I wanted to be a part of getting that work done, but I did not know where to start. Becoming an ambassador gave me direction. This program provided me with clear actionable steps, the support of an amazing team, and valuable resources that allowed me to be of service while also expanding my knowledge of lupus and the lupus community. It has been amazing to learn how to use my story to make a difference and contribute meaningfully to a cause that is so important to me.
