I have volunteered at LFNC since I retired nearly 7 years ago. It has been and continues to be an amazing trip. I have watched the organization grow and change as the world around it grows and changes. However, its mission and goals remain consistent. It continues to promote lupus awareness, to educate and provide information to patients, their families and caregivers through conferences, education classes and electronic newsletters. It also continues to support external research through fund raising activities like the 5K Run/Walk or the Gala. Volunteering 7 years ago most often meant filing, folding, stuffing, and mailings. Now, it is much more likely I will be asked to work on the computer, entering and editing data and researching. There are many fun activities to be done. In addition, I have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people, staff, board members, lupus patients and their families, as well as other volunteers. I look forward to many more years of helping out at this great nonprofit organization.

I have volunteered at LFNC for about two years in the office and with their 5K run/walks and they were all very wonder experiences. The staff is friendly and kind to the volunteers and dedicated to Lupus patients and families. I have met many nice people and made some good friends volunteering at the organization.

I contacted LFNC many years ago when my lupus journey first began. LFNC was extremely helpful then and continues to be a strong organization that has definitely exceeded my expectations. Dedicated, caring, kind group of individuals who care deeply about helping lupus patient and their families. Can't say enough how it has helped me and continues to do so.

Lupus foundation of Northern California became a great help to me when I was first diagnosed with SLE Lupus 9 years ago. Through my rheumatologists office visits I found a flyer of the Alameda subchapter support group. I make it a priority to make all the monthly meetings, because they are encouraging and the group members have become like family. Through the years of attending this support group and going to educational class/seminars the LFNC hosts locally, I am now leading their Youth Support Groiup the Hangout once a month. Its a privilege and honor to be able to volunteer and help the foundation to continue reaching out to our community and instilling hope in the lives of those of us affected with this illness day in and day out. Their dedication and love the staff outpours to us is amazing.

Lupus Foundation of Northern California has been a great resource of information for me. They send out very informative information weekly in their news letters that are helpful and give updates on events that are coming up, giving you the opportunity to volunteer as well. When I go visit the office they always make me feel like family. They have now given me the opportunity to lead one of their Youth Support Groups and its been a great experience. The conferences that they set up for lupus patients are also very good, I have attended two of them and every time I learn something new even after having lupus for 7 years.

As the daughter of the former CFO of Orange County Volunteer, I have volunteered at many non-profits since I was very young, but never have I encountered a community so warm, welcoming, and giving as that of the Lupus Foundation of Northern California, the LFNC. The staff is dedicated to selflessly serving the lupus community by providing venues, setting up conference rooms for support groups, detailing online sources, issuing insurance for all volunteers on duty--and that's just the beginning of the list. By volunteering with LFNC, as I do, you become a part of this community and culture of giving and helping those who are struggling during some of the most difficult moments in their lives with the debilitating and often invisible and ignored disease. I cannot commend LFNC enough for their hard work and dedication, and it is my pleasure to be associated with them.

I have been a volunteer for the LFNC for approximately 27 years. I first became involved when I was newly diagnosed and was seeking information and support. The organization was there to meet my educational and emotional needs. The administration is very supportive and encourages members to become involved, therefore I used my professional experience as a registered nurse to help teach classes, lead support groups and volunteer in other capacities. This nonprofit really stands out in its mission to raise awareness of lupus, support those who suffer from lupus and their families, support legislation to increase funding for research, and directly supply funding for lupus research. For this reason, LFNC should be one of the top great nonprofits in the country.

The Lupus Foundation of Northern California has been a part of my life for the past 15 years. First, as a newly diagnosed client seeking information and support. The organization provided literature, videos and classes. I also found support in one of their subchapter support groups. I met others suffering the same issues and made friends for life. As I became familiar with the chronic nature of the disease, I decided to give back by becoming a volunteer. I utilized my background as a nurse to assist as a spokesperson, teacher and coleader of a support group. During this time I earned how many people have been served by this great nonprofit.

The LFNC was there for me when I was first diagnosed with lupus in 1997 with educational groups, videos, books, and support groups. Once I was comfortable and educated, I gave back to the organization by volunteering as a nurse in their annual run and helping with their classes and support groups. This nonprofit organization not only does wonders to support persons with lupus and their families it also supports research for lupus.

I have volunteered at many non-profits, but LFNC stands out among them because of the dedication of the staff and how much they care about supporting lupus patients and their families and friends. In addition to providing important information, LFNC does an incredible job advocating on their behalf, to get them the support and resources that are needed at the state and national level.

I am a parent of a young lupus patient. LFNC is an invaluable resource for our family. It provides excellent information, education and support. And, even more valuable is it's consistent messaging that, through research and sharing of knowledge, there is hope lupus will become a curable disease.
