A Letter from the President

LSI's next Facebook Live event is coming up on July 11, 2023 and features a conversation with Madeline Handley, a lupus warrior who was diagnosed with lupus 8 years ago and has transitioned to a successful college student. Navigating lupus is challenging at any age, making the transition from childhood lupus to adulthood has its own unique obstacles. Madeline's story and experiences will be inspriational regardless of your age and we hope you'll be able to attend.
LSI is only able to provide Facebook Live events thanks to the success of our Illinois Lupus Walks. Illinois Lupus Walks are a great way to raise awareness about lupus and support LSI's mission. We are looking forward to the team
t-shirt contests, DJ Rick, and the entire lupus community coming together! We look forward to seeing you there.
We are still looking for your memories! As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we want to hear from you! Take a moment to share your recollections with us online here or post it on social media using #LSI50!
In 50 years, we've come so far. Together, we've made a difference.
