It is our vision that no one living with lupus or fibromyalgia will have to endure the challenges of these life-threatening illnesses alone. We envision Lupus and Fibromyalgia survivors uniting so their voices and needs will be heard to receive the support needed. They will no longer have to hide behind their masks, but instead make these invisible illnesses visible for the world to see and understand.
