Doctor's Panel Save the date!

Join us on May 15, where we'll be hosting our annual Doctors Panel! During this free panel discussion, you'll hear from a group of local lupus experts and have opportunities to ask questions and share in discussions on a broad range of lupus-related topics. More details to come! We hope to see you there.

Help us via Amazon Smile!

The LFSC is a participant in AmazonSmile, a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

All you need to do is visit smile.amazon.com and search for the Lupus Foundation of Southern California, and every time you make an Amazon purchase through smile.amazon.com, you will be raising money for the LFSC!

It’s that simple. Plus, it’s free to you, the consumer. The sooner you enroll, the more it helps the cause!

Great news from LRA

LRA lupus advocates have delivered again! A new Spending Bill was recently signed into law, which includes increased money for lupus and biomedical research and additional funds to help the pharmaceutical industry innovate and develop new treatments for diseases like Lupus.

To Our Lupus Community,

Your health and safety are Priority One!  While everyone has been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19), we understand our Lupus Warriors are extremely vulnerable at this time.

Don’t be a victim of COVID-19 Fraudsters. We are concerned about increased fraud and email scams since the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  Cyber actors may send emails with malicious attachments or links to trick victims into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities.  Here are some helpful tips to avoid being a victim:

  • Avoid clicking on links or attachments in unsolicited emails.
  • Use trusted sources for information on COVID-19, such as government websites
  • Do not reveal personal or financial information in an email, and do not respond to emails requesting such information
  • Verify a charity’s authenticity before making donations. Review the Federal Trade Commission’s page on Charity Scams for more information https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0074-giving-charity

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and update you as changes occur.  Please check out our website at www.lupussocal.org to get more information.  Or follow us on Instagram and Twitter @lupussocal and our Facebook page, Lupus Foundation of Southern California.

Remember, our volunteers are here to help!  If you need anything (e.g., groceries or medicine picked up; letters mailed; boxes shipped; etc.), please do not hesitate to email info@lupussocal.org or call us at 858-278-2788.
