I was diagnosed with lupus almost 8 years ago after years of misdiagnosis and no answers. There is still so much that is unknown about this disease and Lupus LA gives 100% of the money raised towards research. The founder of Lupus LA, Dr. Daniel Wallace, developed Benlysta, the first new lupus drug approved in 50 years, that has completely changed my quality of life.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects more than 1.5 million Americans. Nine out of ten lupus patients are women, the majority of whom are of minority descent. Lupus can attack virtually any organ of the body, including the kidneys, brain, heart, and blood. There is no known cause or cure.
While training, team members also raise money for Lupus LA through individual fundraising efforts. 100% of money raised will fund important research for better treatment and a cure
