Mission Statement

Jayla's Smile works to promote awareness of Lupus in the Jacksonville community. Bringing the illness to the forefront of research in hopes of a cure.

Description

Jayla's Smile Inc (JSI) was founded by Jayla, a Jacksonville youth who was diagnosed with lupus when she was only 7 years old. Because lupus is rare in children, JSI also interacts with other children with rare chronic illnesses and diseases to build a network of support and friendship between these children and Jayla.

JSI hosts quarterly support groups, affectionately called "Lupie Link-Ups" where lupus patients can get together and share in an upbeat environment. We also host an annual back to school giveaway in honor of our founder, Jayla, who is also a student in duval county schools, a teddy bear drive where new teddy bears are donated to Wolfson Children's Hospital and finally we host an annual Gala/Benefit Dinner as a recap for the year and to raise funds for lupus research.
