Mission Statement

The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. Through a comprehensive program of research, education, and advocacy, we lead the fight to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus.


The LFA energetically pursues its mission through five program objectives:

  • Provides direct financial support to researchers through LFA's own national research program, Bringing Down the Barriers
  • Advocates for increased public and private sector support for research on lupus
  • Translates research findings into medically sound information and programs for people with lupus, their families, physicians, and other health professionals
  • Heightens public awareness of the impact of lupus
  • Supports individuals with lupus, their families and caregivers

I feel truly upset that I couldn't participate for such a cause. I have friends and family with this known disease. But I do recommend others to please join such events to raise awareness. For it is effecting others.

As a lupus patient myself I know firsthand the impact this disease can have on the lives of not only the people living with lupus but also on the family members who are helping care for them. The LFA is committed to raising awareness to an otherwise unknown disease. I am asking that you join me and the Lupus Foundation of America in our efforts to raise awareness of lupus because together we can help end its brutal impact.
