WHAT IS LUPUS? Lupus is a chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation (swelling) and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, meaning that your immune system attacks healthy tissue, and most commonly affects the skin, joints and internal organs — including kidneys or lungs. There are currently few effective therapies and no effective cures for Lupus. Patients with Lupus can have significantly reduced quality of life due to the disease, and some even suffer complications leading to death. Lupus disproportionately affects women and people of color. This disease can be difficult to diagnose and expensive to control.

WHO IS LFA? Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) advocates for Lupus research, provides materials and support services to those impacted by Lupus and raises general awareness for this complicated disease.
