Why Support the Walk to End Lupus Now®?

Smarter Research, Faster Progress
Lupus is the cruel mystery, and research is the key to end its brutal impact. Years of disappointing results in lupus drug development suggest that a different approach is needed. Smarter research will generate faster progress. We challenge what is not working to support and fund research that is most hopeful to uncover the cause of lupus. Our organization understands the progression and works to accelerate the search for a cure.
