the quality of our works

Every day, thousands of Illinois residents live with the uncertainty of lupus, an unpredictable and often disabling disease that can affect virtually any system in the body.

Although there is no cure and few treatments, there is help.  The Lupus Society of Illinois provides personal support to people living with lupus and those that care about them.

Your support makes a difference.

Educational events LSI hosts annually
Financial assistance grants LSI is able to pay out annually
People helped annually through the Lupus Community Navigator Program
Estimated number of people reached through health fairs and speaking engagements

Making Lives Better…

  • “Thank you for putting together the educational teleconference on pain management. I found it to be quite informative. No one seems to believe my pain but I continue to find solutions.”

  • “It was a very great presentation. It helped me with coping. I’m looking forward to attending several more in the future.”

  • "I realized that in 8 years of dealing with Lupus, I have never talked to anyone who actually understands and is not just on the outside empathizing. I am so glad you put me in touch with her."

  • "I completed the shamrock shuffle in 59 minutes and it was truly an amazing experience. I myself have lupus and it is active. I never thought I'd be able to finish because just last summer my flare ups were so often that I could hardly move. Raising money and getting out there and running for such an important cause, was incredible! I look forward to participating in more fundraising and races to support the Lupus Society!"

  • "I cannot thank you enough for awarding me the Living With Lupus Grant. Truly I am grateful for the opportunity to use the money towards costs that will help me on this journey of living with lupus. Please continue in the fight of finding a cure for lupus and meanwhile offering opportunities like workshops, conferences and this grant for people like myself who need resources and support battling this cruel disease."

  • I was so happy to talk to you, too. I especially appreciated your accessibility and down to earth conversation and suggestions. I'm going to forward this email to my daughter, who is a nurse practitioner and mother of our dear 18 year old, the focus of my information search. Thank you!
