Review for Lupus Foundation of Northern California, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became involved with the Lupus Foundation of Northern California when I was diagnosed 10 years ago. Maggie was the first caring voice that I connected with and who offered to send reading materials and described the support and education that the non profit agency offered. The LFNC has been in exisence for 41 years supporting not only Northern California but also lupus patients out of state that need a "buddy" assigned to a newly diagnosed patient. They can also tune into video casts from Rheumatoid physicians where there are question ane answer opportunities. I wanted to give back to the agency so I formed my team, " Roberta's Hope For Lupus Research," to raise money for this invaluable non profit with very dedicated volunteers. I also served as a board member for five years because the LFNC has been the main "go to" link for information and support for lupus patients and their families. I will be forever grateful for the immediate support I received from so many staff members, the board and the many dedicated volunteers. We lupus patients and "lupus families" need the Lupus Foundation of Northern California.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want them to continue to reach out to more communities like they are doing. I am impressed with their efforts to strengthen their web trainings even more. We lupus patients are so shocked with the initial diagnosis. Information, sharing and support is power to fight this horrible disease and to make us spiritually strong as we fight the battle.

Review for Lupus Foundation of Northern California, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The lupus Foundation does phenomenal work for lupus patients and their families! Their volunteer base is always willing to give whatever is needed to meet the task. I am a lupus warrior and finding the support and friendship within this organization has had a lifting spiritual affect on me which I KNOW helps my lupus. The LFNC works hard to collaborate and partner with the Lupus Research Alliance in increasing lupus awareness and raise money for research. I am so impressed with the degree of community outreach this organization does. The LFNC is the hand that reaches out to us who are in need of support and understanding of our lupus condition.

Review for Lupus Foundation of Northern California, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It was wonderful to have a connection and a place to call for resources when I was diagnosed five years ago. My physician didn't give me any information or links to begin educating myself on the disease. My emails from the LFNC kept me up to date with research and resources. I was very grateful and participated in their 5k by organizing a team. The LFNC is vital to our community!
