>On Giving Tuesday, our fight to improve the quality of life for all those impacted by lupus is more vital now than ever before. Every day, medical research on lupus is advancing diagnostic techniques, developing and introducing better treatments, and inspiring hope as we inch closer to finding a cure. Until that cure is found, your Ohio Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America will continue providing patient navigation, support, and education. Show your support by contributing on Giving Tuesday.
Give - Inspiration
Lupus is an unpredictable chronic autoimmune connective tissue disorder with a wide range of potential symptoms. Because this cruel and mysterious disease affects every patient differently, each individual living with lupus has a unique perspective.

Give - Awareness
Many symptoms of lupus aren’t always visible, but on the inside, it can wreak havoc. If you are interested in helping make lupus visible, your Ohio Chapter of the LFA wants to collaborate with you on your campaign! The office staff can provide you with tools and resources, and we would love to assist you with your awareness-raising efforts. Contact us by calling 1 (888) NOLUPUS or emailing email@example.com.
Give - Advocacy
The Foundation relies on the voices of patients and caregivers while fighting to ensure that the government is responsive to the needs of people with lupus. By becoming a lupus advocate, you can help to establish equitable access to care. Advocacy efforts in 2018 successfully resulted in the prioritization of lupus in the state’s annual budget for health spending. Get notified of upcoming advocacy initiatives by signing up today.
