Roughly 1.5 million people in the U.S. have lupus and 60,000 people suffering from lupus in Los Angeles County. Almost 70% of the public knows little or nothing about the disease. Lupus LA’s mission is to raise funds for its patient programs, local rheumatology fellowships and research partners at the Lupus Research Alliance. Lupus LA has raised over $10,000,000 since 2000.
