WE'D LIKE YOUR ASSISTANCE

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.
