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.
