The Local Lupus Alliance is here to help

Chances are, if you are reading this, that you or someone you love has been diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). There is no cure and it can be fatal. The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that 1.5 million Americans, and at least five million people worldwide, have a form of lupus. The Local Lupus Alliance exists in the Coulee Region to connect those suffering from lupus. Patients and supporters can share their struggles, ask questions, participate in fundraisers, celebrate victories, support one another, all while finding a way to cope with this illness.
