As all of you know, every year I join my fellow LFA staffers as part of a team raising critical funds to support the Lupus Foundation of America's work. This year we will be walking virtually due to COVID-19. COVID-19 has impacted our lives in so many ways, but it has been especially difficult for the 1.5 million Americans living with lupus due to their already comprioised immune systems. In addition, when hydroxychloroquine emerged as a potential treatment for COVID-19, access to one of the few drugs available to people living with lupus became extremely challenging.
The challenges we face today are a reminder we must continue the fight to improve the quality of life for all those living with lupus, to ensure access to vital treatments and to continue to fund critical lupus research so we can put an end to this devastating and potentially fatal autoimmune disease.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Your donation of any amount is so appreciated and will support the continued work of the Lupus Foundation of America to advance lupus research and provide resources and support to those living with the disease.
Thank you so much for your generosity and support!
