At BC Lupus Society, we are a non-profit organization with a goal to find a cure for lupus.
Our mission is to raise awareness, support advances in research, educate the public, and provide resources to those affected by lupus.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that has no known cause or cure. It affects people of all ages, especially adolescent girls and women of childbearing age, and can target anywhere in the body including the skin, joints, kidneys, and heart.
Lupus can affect babies and young children too. Pediatric lupus accounts for 15% of all SLE patients. Lupus in children is considered more detrimental as the disease is more likely to cause damage on the body’s vital organs, such as the kidneys and brain.
At BCLS, supporting advances in treatments and research is a top priority. We have an annual goal to donate $50,000 to Arthritis Research Scientist, Dr. Antonio Aviña-Zubieta, and his team as they further the research towards a cure for lupus.
The toughest thing about lupus is that it can present in so many different ways, making it often difficult to diagnose. Lupus left undiagnosed can become fatal.
With your support, we can continue to support children and families affected by lupus with the hope of a cure for this disease of 1000 faces.

Cause

The BC Lupus Society is the only organization in the province dedicated solely to providing lupus education and support services. We have been in operation for 44 years and we are committed to sponsoring research and providing hope for those affected by lupus. The BC Lupus Society is incorporated provincially and provides a wide variety of services through its Public Education, Support and Awareness Program which benefits an estimated 6,000 to 8,000 BC lupus sufferers and up to 40,000 BC residents when including the patient’s extended personal network of family and caregivers.  Support of the BC Lupus Society is particularly critical now more than ever, when people affected by lupus have found themselves among the most vulnerable.  Funds raised through gaming events will go directly to our BC Lupus Scholar, Dr. Antonio Aviña-Zubieta, and his team as they further research that brings us 1 step closer to eradicating the disease.  For more information on ways you can support the BC Lupus Society, please visit www.bclupus.org.
