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

Rating: 5 stars  

With a staff of only three, the LFNC has been an amazing powerhouse within the lupus community. Though focused on the Northern California region, the LFNC impacts lupus patients throughout the United States with their Facebook live chats and nationwide buddy program. As both a patient and a volunteer, the LFNC has been a huge support in my own life. It has given me the opportunity to meet others dealing with lupus and has provided me with resources, education and a sense of community. It has been an amazing organization to volunteer for and participate in, filled with dedicated people who are committed to really helping helping patients, promoting awareness, and advocacy within the lupus community. It is not just an organization. It is a family!

Had it not been for the amazing people at the LFNC I may have spiraled out of control. In a period filled with panic attacks, high anxiety and multiple brain issues they kept me grounded. The support group has been an amazing resource and is inclusive of everyone, No one is ever turned away for lack of resources which puts this in the top of the Lupus Organizations. There is always a friendly face or a welcoming voice and plenty of food! A great organization to get involved with whether you are a patent or just looking for more information.

Until the past year, my only association was the LFNC was the annual walk, which I felt was my obligation as a person with lupus. Until the past year, I did not realize what an integral part of my life it has become. Not only have I gotten much needed support, but I have made great friends in the lupus community and expanded my knowledge of my disease by hosting seminars and conferences. I am happy to be one of the charter members of the lupus buddy program and went through the patient education class. I can't imagine my life without the LFNC I just wish I had discovered I needed them earlier, might have helped me through some tough times. Thank you to everyone at the LFNC for your hard work and dedication.
