Yet, most people don’t know much more about lupus other than it’s name. L.I.F.E. continuously strives to change the public’s awareness on what chronic illnesses are and the struggles faced by an individual with this disease. It’s also important for people to understand that lupus affects more than just the diagnosed individual - family and friends are also greatly impacted.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, over the years L.I.F.E. has awarded over 110 merit-based scholarships to students in 35 states. Awarded scholarships not only provide financial assistance to our inspirational students, but each award allows L.I.F.E. to successfully reach more of the general public through publications, social media, our website, and of course word of mouth from family/friends.
In effort to increase these awareness efforts, an anonymous L.I.F.E. Board and Scholarship Committee Member has generously agreed to match all donations received now through June 30th (up to $2000) - this is just in time for the August 2016 L.I.F.E. Scholarships!
