Don’t believe me? Look at what people are saying about the LSI’s resources and support that you make possible:
“I was so happy to talk to you! I especially appreciated your accessibility and down to earth conversation and suggestions. I'm going to forward this email to my daughter, who is a nurse practitioner and mother of our dear 18 year old, the focus of my information search. Thank you!” Barbara, grandmother of a lupus patient
“Thank you for putting together the educational teleconference on pain management. I found it to be quite informative. No one seems to believe my pain but I continue to find solutions.” Participant of LSI’s educational teleconference on pain management
"I realized that in 8 years of dealing with Lupus, I have never talked to anyone who actually understands and is not just on the outside empathizing. I am so glad you put me in touch with her." Mother of an adolescent child with lupus who took advantage of the Individual Peer Support Program
Lupus can be challenging, isolating, debilitating and lonely. With your help, we can continue to provide resources and support that make lives better.
Today, we ask you to donate to the LSI and continue to make a difference in the lives of people living with lupus in Illinois.
Thanks to everyone who donated, posted and supported the lupus community through #GivingTuesday!
