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.

A True Story…

  • “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.”

    Participant of LSI’s educational teleconference on pain management, presented by Lora McGuire, MS, RN.
  • “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."
