Our History

women with lupus helping others with lupus

Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!

Founded in September 2006 in Augusta, Georgia by a mother and daughter duo both living with Lupus, we've expanded our services to include the Columbia, South Carolina Midlands and Fort Jackson regions.

Lupus what is lupus

Cardinal Symptoms of Lupus

 

  • Extreme fatigue (tiredness)
  • Headaches
  • Painful or swollen joints
  • Fever
  • Anemia (low numbers of red blood cells or hemoglobin.)
  • Swelling (edema) in feet, legs, hands, and/or around eyes
  • Pain in chest on deep breathing (pleurisy)
  • Butterfly-shaped rash across cheeks and nose
  • Sun- or light-sensitivity (photosensitivity)
  • Hair loss
  • Abnormal blood clotting
  • Fingers turning white and/or blue when cold 
  • Mouth or nose ulcers


Many of these symptoms occur in other illnesses. In fact, lupus is sometimes

called "the great imitator" because its symptoms are often like the symptoms

of rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, thyroid problems, Lyme disease,

and a number of heart, lung, muscle, and bone diseases.


You play an important role in helping your doctor manage your disease.

Listen to your body, ask questions and stay involved.
