Social Testimonial
"I love being able to meet other lupus warriors, their caregivers, and the Foundation staff who work so tirelessly. While we are acutely aware of lupus and the need for research and a cure, a lot of people on the Hill appreciate learning more from us face to face. It's exhausting but totally worth it!! I can't wait! "
