Walkin' Talkin' Lupus 2015 kicks off on Sunday May 10th, World Lupus Day, 6pm!
Lupus warriors and supporters take a leisurely walk together every week for exercise and good health, but more importantly to connect, learn from and support one another. Just think of it as a support group, walking club and girl's day out all in one!! Men are welcome too! Bring your families along, a good walk is great for everybody's health. We will stroll the river walk beginning at Milliken State Park (Atwater St and Rivard), we will meet near the carousel. Please let us know if you plan to attend by email, Twitter or Facebook.
Wear Purple or Orange for Lupus!!

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body).
Hello Lupus Survivors, Advocates and Supporters. Thank you for visiting the LSF website. We would like all of you to become registered members. If you are a member we can give you updates and pass on valuable information. Your participation in the forums is also very important. The more information that is shared, the more people we will attract to join the site. LSF would like this website to become a place where lupus survivors and supporters can exchange information, meet new people, get assistance, and learn a little more about the impact of lupus and how to cope with the illness. We are in need of your support, so that we can build a network in order to better serve our lupus survivors.
"I began the Lupus Star Foundation because I felt like internet advocacy and blogging was just not enough. I wanted to do more. I wished to create a family of lupus survivors and supporters that can support each other and do great things for the cause. Lupus is a terrible illness that affects so many people around the world. Even though lupus is rather common, many people do not know what it is. There are also many misconceptions about lupus floating around. What I would like to do is raise awareness and educate the public on the impact of the illness. Awareness is essential. We cannot expect people to care about something that they know nothing about. Even though I have suffered with lupus for 8 years, hearing another's Lupus story still brings me to tears. We need a cure! We also need the public and government to truly understand the nature of lupus and how it impacts the lives of millions of people. LSF will become a strong force against lupus. Our stars will always shine bright!"
