As we come to the end of 2011, we reflect back on all the progress we’ve made this year. Your support enabled the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) to increase awareness about lupus, generate greater investments in lupus research, and stimulate the development of new, safe, and more effective treatments. Together, we have made great progress. But there is still much more work that needs to be done.
This year, three long-time LFA supporters generously pledged to the LFA a total of $100,000 — enough to fund a lupus research project for a year, like Dr. Vikki Abraham’s study on lupus and pregnancy.
"Our studies are moving towards the goal of working out better ways of predicting pregnancy complications, and better ways of treating them. Without the initial funding from the LFA, we never would have been able to accomplish this."

We are reaching out today to ask you and all LFA supporters to band together and match their generosity through our 2011 Year-End Giving Campaign.
Please consider making your generous 2011 Year-End Contribution to the LFA by December 31, 2011 to help reach our goal and support even more life-saving research initiatives in 2012.
