A Life Without Lupus

Team Life Without Lupus promotes lupus awareness, educates about the seriousness of lupus, and the need for increased research and patient services.

The nonprofit S.L.E. Lupus Foundation leads the nation in providing direct patient services, education, public awareness, and funding for novel lupus research on the national level.

Since its founding in 1970 by families with lupus, the Foundation has helped tens of thousands of people with lupus and their families and friends cope with the anxieties and confusion that accompany daily living with a complex and dangerous chronic illness.

Headquartered in New York City, the Foundation promotes early diagnosis of lupus and provides support to people with the illness—especially in disadvantaged neighborhoods of New York City—through public service campaigns, public education programs and community outreach efforts. It vigorously addresses racial disparities in lupus through community-based programs that model effective management of chronic disease in minority women.

The Foundation also funds lupus research grants and fellowship awards for new investigators in the New York region, and supports innovative novel research nationwide in partnership with the Lupus Research Institute (LRI).
