What is Lupus
Lupus is an incurable autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation in one or more parts of the body. The most common type of lupus is Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
Systemic Lupus is a complex and sometimes baffling condition that can target any tissue or organ of the body, including skin, muscles, joints, blood vessels, lungs, heart, kidneys, and the brain.
There are other types of lupus which mainly affect the skin (Discoid Lupus).
Lupus typically occurs in young women between the ages of 15 and 45 (however, men and children are also found to have lupus).
How Does Lupus Ontario Support the Community?
Providing a total of $2.2 M in funding for research and the Annual Lupus Ontario Geoff Carr Research Fellowship since 1990.
Running online and in-person Support Groups for lupus patients and their families.
Educating lupus patients on managing their disease through monthly webinars, newsletters and the Lupus Ontario website.
Holding Medical Symposiums focused on managing lupus and providing research updates.
Creating awareness through social media, our website and annual events such as the Walk for Lupus and the Italian Dinner.
Led by our founder Honey Agar, over a million dollars was raised for the startup of the Lupus Databank at Toronto Western Hospital. This databank has been the source of valuable patient information for countless lupus research projects.These projects have resulted in a better understanding of lupus and, have formed the basis of improved techniques for management of the disease.
Funding the annual Geoff Carr Lupus Research Fellowship since 1990.This Fellowship has trained over 30 rheumatologists at an Ontario Lupus Clinic to become experts in diagnosing and treating lupus. Each Fellow is also required to complete a research project during their Fellowship year.
One of the biggest challenges lupus patients have is getting a timely diagnosis. The doctors trained during the Geoff Carr Fellowship develop the skills needed to do this. Early diagnosis leads to better outcomes.
Supporting accredited Lupus Clinics across the province by providing funding for research and patient education activities.
It is estimated that lupus affects tens of thousands of people in Canada. At least one third of lupus patients are unable to work full-time and the vast majority are forced to make significant lifestyle changes.
Because of the complexity of lupus, it is very challenging to properly diagnose, patients often suffer for several years before their disease is properly diagnosed. Better methods of diagnosis are needed.
Many of the current lupus medications have serious side effects. More research is required to develop better medications.
Lupus is a disease that can go into remission and then suddenly flare. Better methods of predicting and preventing flares are needed.
There is no cure, our goal is to one day have a Life Without Lupus.
