LUPUS LA

Lupus LA's Mission

Lupus LA is dedicated to finding the causes of, and cure for lupus, while providing support, services and hope to all people affected by lupus.

Lupus LA, a non-profit health organization, was founded in 2000 by Daniel J. Wallace, M.D., attending physician in the Division of Rheumatology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and a clinical professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Lupus LA serves the needs of people with lupus and their families in Los Angeles County and across Southern California. With offices in Beverly Hills and Boyle Heights, Lupus LA has a full-time staff of five, and an annual operating budget of $1.4 million.

 

Lupus LA raises funds for its patient programs, local rheumatology fellowships and research partner, the Lupus Research Institute (LRI) - the world’s leading private supporter of innovative research in lupus. Since the year 2000, Lupus LA has raised $10,000,000 dollars for the cause, primarily through special events – the LA Marathon, the Orange Ball, Get Lucky for Lupus LA, and the Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon.

 

Raising awareness is also an important part of the Lupus LA mission. While lupus is widespread, awareness and accurate knowledge about it is lacking. Research shows that although 1.5 million people in the U.S. have lupus, nearly two-thirds of the public knows little or nothing about the disease. In fact, more Americans have lupus than AIDS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis, making it one of this country's most prevalent medical problems. In Los Angeles County alone, there are over 60,000 people suffering from lupus.

In addition to raising money, Lupus LA’s events raise awareness through extensive local, regional and national media coverage - in print and on TV, radio and the Internet. This is made possible through the support of Hollywood – both celebrities and industry executives.
