Life Without Lupus
The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) is excited to join the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) fundraising program Walk with Us to Cure Lupus in New York City to help raise funds for lupus research. We invite all our patients, friends and supporters to walk with Team Life Without Lupus® to broaden what is already an inspiring and successful event.
Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. In lupus, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, creates antibodies that attack the body’s own tissues and organs -- the kidneys, brain, heart, lungs, blood, skin, and joints. The need for new treatments and a cure is urgent.
The LRI chose to walk as a team with the ALR because of our shared commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. 100% of all funds raised by LRI’s Team Life Without Lupus will go towards lupus research. The LRI and ALR are collaborating on a research initiative to accelerate new lupus treatments with the goal to speed availability of better, safer treatments for lupus patients.
