Do You Know Someone With LUPUS?

 

Lupus Ontario is the largest provincial voluntary organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with lupus through advocacy, education, public awareness, support and research. Celebrating 30 years of service in 2008, Lupus Ontario was formed in 2004 when The Ontario Lupus Association and the Lupus Society of Hamilton amalgamated. Both organizations were formed in 1978 by volunteers dedicated to helping lupus patients learn about and cope with this life-altering and sometimes life-taking autoimmune disorder. Over 1:1000 Canadian men, women and children are living with lupus. Lupus Ontario is a member organization of Lupus Canada and our ultimate goal is:
Life without lupus.
