For the past 41 years, the Lupus and Allied Diseases Association, Inc., has been providing education, support, and outreach services for people impacted by lupus and allied diseases while wielding the patient voice as a catalyst to advance awareness, advocacy and research initiatives.
For the Fiscal Year ending on September 30, 2019 our organization's administrative costs were less than 1.0% leaving more than 99.0% of every dollar raised going directly to our Program Services!
It is our hope that if you have lupus and/or an allied disease or love someone with lupus that you will use this website and our programs as tools to become empowered to take control and learn to manage the disease to live life to the fullest. We know firsthand that lupus and allied diseases do not just affect an individual, but also impact family, friends and others close to you.
Know that we are here for you and your loved ones as we all continue on our lupus journeys.
