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.
