FINAL LVL Lupus Support Group: High Tea & Scones @ Abiola's
For our very last Meetup, the Lead LVL Volunteer, Abiola, will host "high tea" at her private home. As usual, professionals from ALL walks of life who are living with Lupus a/o other autoimmune illnesses are encouraged to attend this final support group meeting which, for the past 3 years now, has served as a safe space for fellow Spoonies to share in the fun, get emotional support, and exchange practical knowledge. Tea & scones & laughs will be served up from 11:00 am EST! Join us! * Solicition is strictly prohibited. All discussions are confidential.*
