About the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc.

Who We Are and What We Do

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.

A Comprehensive Strategy

Lupus is a complex disease that requires a comprehensive strategy. Across the nation, we bring together all stakeholders with an interest in lupus to:

  • Lead special research initiatives, fund innovative studies, and advocate for increased public and private investment in lupus research to advance the science and medicine of lupus;
  • Translate research findings into useful programs, information, and tools for people with lupus, and ensure health professionals know about new means to diagnose and manage the disease;
  • Conduct outreach efforts to increase public understanding of lupus, and share stories of those who suffer from the disease to rally public support to join the fight to end lupus; and, 
  • Provide caring support to people with lupus, their families and their caregivers, and help guide them through the complexities of living with lupus.

 Help Us Solve The Cruel Mystery!

If you join the fight, we will not have to concede victory to this terrible disease. With your support and involvement, we will be able to solve the cruel mystery of lupus in our lifetime and end its devastating impact on millions of lives.
