The year 2014 is almost over and we have had a busy year.  Just a reminder about #GivingTuesday.  This year it falls on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Lupus patients, please help and support the cause of lupus.  We have worked since October 1993 so very hard as volunteers and I am happy to say that we have made many accomplishments.  People are finally taking this cruel complex disease of lupus serious.  Research in Little Rock was a big milestone.  Although the research did not work, we are praying that will not be the end of lupus research in Arkansas.  The first medication in over 50 years for lupus was approved  by FDA March 2009 and lupus has been around for many years.  It is difficult for me to believe that lupus patients only had aspirin for the excruiating pain they had to endure, but that is true.

We need your help by you attending lupus support group meetings.  Stop and help someone else once you have gotten on your feet.  We need to encourage each other.  New lupus patients need someone they can talk to regarding the experiences they have with lupus.  We need lupus patients and/or family members on our board of directors, we need you to help with fundraising, we need you to be a part of this organization.  We need volunteers to help out both at the office and at our fundraisers.
