50 Years of Memories!

In 1973, a small group of volunteers founded the first non-profit lupus organization in Illinois.

Now, 50 year’s later, the LSI is still here, meeting the needs of our community.

We look forward to celebrating this milestone with YOU—the people we serve and the people who support us.

Share your stories, memories and photos below and donate in honor of our 50th Anniversary here.

Sharonna’s Memories

I’ve been volunteering with the LSI for years.  The last few years I’ve helped out at the walks as a face painter.  I love the kids reactions once they see themselves in the mirror.  The projects are always different.  I’m learning while I’m giving my time.  What I love most is advocating for lupus.  When I was at my worst and first diagnosed with lupus in 2014, the LSI was here for me, when no one else was.  I love volunteering for the LSI because its my way of giving back.


The LSI has been a big part of my Lupus journey. Through fundraising, education seminars, having family & friends join my team for over 10 years of Lupus walks, being a walk ambassador, going to their award luncheons, speaking downtown for world lupus day and meeting & making friends in the lupus community I have so many memories. I’ll share a few of probably hundreds of pics.

My Memory was started back in 2007 at our first Lupus walk. I created a Team in Honor of my Dad ¨Paco¨ Pacoś Posse. He had lupus for 39 years. I found this Great Team of Lupus supporting people.
