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.
