Emerge From the Cocoon of Lupus Support Groups!

support group logoedit2Our Mission is to provide support to those living with lupus and their families through, Experience, Strength, and Hope.

The Lupus Alliance of LIQ`s support groups provide people with lupus and their families an opportunity to share their experiences with those who can understand and identify with them.  Support group meetings are designed to be educational, fun, interactive and positive.

Each support group meeting will be a little different – some are educational with speakers, others are more about members sharing and some are a little of both. In addition, the Lupus Alliance of LIQ`s support groups welcome participation from friends, spouses, adult children (18 and over) and family members.

Our groups welcome members to pay it forward. If you are feeling good, coping well, or living successfully with lupus we welcome you to come and share your story with others. Help us to help others see there is hope for a full and enjoyable life with lupus. Everyone who attends our support group meetings and the Lupus Alliance of LIQ representatives are all here for one common purpose – To Support YOU!
