About Us

This website is maintained by the San Francisco Lupus Support Group, a subchapter of the Lupus Foundation of Northern California. Our website is constantly evolving with contributions from people who visit our site. Feel free to contact us and share your story with us.

The San Francisco Lupus Support Group's mission is to build a supportive community to educate all people living with lupus, their families and friends so that they do not have to deal with this disease alone. We are not exclusive and welcome anyone who needs support within the Bay Area. Our additional goal is to spread lupus awareness in support of ongoing research for better treatments, a cause and cure for lupus.

We're here to offer assistance through our support group meetings and guest speakers, our customized Patient Education Day, and through information and resources learned and shared among members of our community. We also encourage our group to participate in events that help spread awareness and fundraise for lupus research and for lupus educational programs and services. This includes participation in activities with our main chapter, The Lupus Foundation of Northern California as well as The Alliance for Lupus Research Walk with Us to Cure Lupus and The Lupus Foundation of America Walk to Cure Lupus Now.

Our San Francisco support group meetings are co-facilitated by Barbara Dangerfield and Evanne Grate.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

We're always looking for new ideas and help in improving our support group, such as finding speakers, fundraising ideas, and assisting us with our local Patient Education Day.

We also need volunteers for our own events as well as for other activities like the Lupus Walks.
