Last night’s meeting was a wonderful experience for me, it is the first time I have been part of a focus group and right away I felt welcomed and comforted to know that I am not alone through this Journey! It was nice to hear other individual experiences and stories about Lupus and how each person copes and the knowledge we can all share with each other. I am looking forward to our next meeting! Thank you all Ladies , Lupus Warriors xo

Nine years ago when our son was diagnosed with Lupus, we knew nothing about it.  The Hamilton branch of Lupus Ontario came to our rescue. Their meetings, guest speakers and moral support helped us through that first rough year.  Since then we have passed on the knowledge we had gained from those meetings unto families who are finding themselves in the same boats we had been in. Thank you Lupus Ontario for being there for families like ours.

The 2014-15 Geoff Carr Lupus Fellowship was a truly life-changing experience for me. Apart from the financial support and medical expertise, I had the opportunity to be actively involved in the lupus community, meet extraordinary people and feel more complete as a physician and a human being. I am always grateful to Lupus Ontario for this and looking forward to further achievements for lupus patients.

I’ve been a patient at the Toronto Western Lupus Clinic for about 15 years.  When I first went to the clinic I was living in Northern Ontario and had a 10 hour round trip to get to my appointments.  But I felt the excellent care I was getting from the doctors was well worth the drive.  Knowing these Doctors are leaders in the field of Lupus, both in patient care and in research, is important to me.    I like that appointments run on time and that I am given adequate time to discuss my health concerns. 

I like that the doctors are not only concerned about treating current flares but also concentrate on taking preventative measures to prevent health issues in the future.  The clinic also has access to making referrals to other specialist when I there is a need and from my experience I have never had to wait long to see these other doctors.
