The Local Lupus Alliance is excited to announce as part of our Compassionate Care program, that we are looking to sponsor up to 12 children with lupus this year, to go to a camp in Wis Dells called Camp Mash. http://wicampmash.org/ the camp is 6 days Aug 5-10. The children need to be between the age of 8-17 and have lupus or other autoimmune inflammatory illness and be from our La Crosse and surrounding area. We are aware of 3 children right now that we would like to send, but if you know of any children that fit this criteria, please send them to us so we can give them a break from their illness to have some fun and meet other children going through the same things they are. We will also give the parents a gas card to pay for their travel to and from the Camp. There is also a one day camp for children ages 4-7 and their parents so that age group would also be eligible as well. Deadline for letting us know is April 30.
