Let’s conquer lupus together

Support Research

This year we have set a campaign goal of raising $50, 000. The funds raised will support the annual Geoff Carr Lupus Research Fellowship, the Lupus Ontario Anne Matheson BioBank and the six accredited Lupus Clinics across the province, which provide research and patient education to those living with lupus.

With your support, we hope to one day Live a Life Without Lupus.
