Local lupus support group proposed

A meeting is planned for Friday, May 10 at 1 p.m. at the Hope Library

Do you or someone you know have lupus?

Do you live in Hope or the surrounding area?

Are you interested in participating in a peer support group?

A lupus peer support group is a group of people who gather together to share their experience with lupus with others who truly understand what they’re going through and can share the type of practical insights that can only come from firsthand experience.

A support group also offers the opportunity to learn more about lupus from trusted sources.

The BC Lupus Society is exploring the possibility of starting a lupus support group in Hope.

A meeting is planned for Friday, May 10 at 1 p.m. at the Hope Library.

A video of the Lupus Society Health and Education Symposium will be shown featuring Dr. Victor Huckell speaking on lupus and the heart.

To learn more or if you are interested in attending the meeting, please contact 604 714-5564 or email val@bclupus.org.

Please RSVP with your name, address, phone number and email address, to ensure we have enough materials available.
