What we're about
Welcome to the LVL Lupus Support Group's Meetup Page! ANYONE can this Spoonie/Lupus Support Group, particularly ALL Spoonies and friends & family of those living with ANY chronic, autoimmune illnesses, especially #Lupus. We're SOLELY about emotional support; we share experiences around specific topics & talk through the challenges most often associated with living (and working!) with autoimmune disease via a monthly conference call. Dial-in, enter code, join us on the call! Again, ALL ARE WELCOME!
Warmest regards and until we #CureLupus,
Abiola Heyliger, LVL Director, Spoonie/Lupus Support Group Meetup Founder & Lupus Warrior Since 2005
