Review from Guidestar

Working with the organization made me realize how many unselfish people there are who just want to make I difference or make someone's life easier. I've worked with the San Jose lupus foundation for a few years now, and every time I'm there I'm greeted with a smile. Most organizations I've worked with before give you a job that keeps you busy, but might not really have a direct impact on others. Lupus has givin me the opportunity to take on challenges that will help the organization move forward. Personally I will do any job I can to help but with lupus they gave me a opportunity to make a direct difference in other organization and with others, making me feel wanted and needed which everyone wants as a volunteer. Special thanks to Rene, Spandan, and Maggie at the Lupus Foundation San Jose.

I first came across LFNC when I was diagnosed with Systemic Connective Tissue disorder. I was going through a very rough time in my life and this organization became a second family. One that understands and is supportive in every way possible. They helped encourage me to never give up hope on battling this horrible and confusing disease. With the support from them and from my family and friends I have been in remission for about 6 months now. I have been volunteering at LFNC all through out my battle with SCTD/Lupus and have even spoken at a meeting regarding my remission and my journey in how I got there. LFNC has done so much for me I can't say enough. I fully support them the way they have supported me. I recommend this organization to anyone who wants to be a part of an amazing cause.

The whole team was like a family and everyone who walked into the office was given a warm welcome. I love working with them because I'm not treated like a little kid (I'm 18 but I look younger), I am given the same amount of respect as any other person. Everything is always completed on time and the planning as well as preparing for events is efficient and always on the dot. They've made being a volunteer there fun and I can't wait 'till I go again.

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 learned much about lupus from the Lupus Foundation of Northern California’s education and advocacy programs. Their electronic e-newsletter has some great articles, with health and life management tips that are great for lupus patients (and are often applicable to those without lupus too). And their facebook page often reports on stories where lupus patients or new drug possibilities are in the news.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving important information and education. And seeing the community created through their events

As the parent of a child with lupus, LFNC has been an invaluable resource. We have benefited immeasurably from their informational online chats, publications, online resources and conferences. In addition, our daughter has been able to take an active role in organizing a fundraising team for the lupus walk. This has given her an opportunity to take action and meet others with lupus and arthritis, which has been very helpful to her coping with the illness.
