In the last few months, we have faced exceedingly challenging times during this global pandemic. Though COVID-19 has swept through our world, other diseases and illnesses are still at large, many of which are even more critical due to the impact of the virus, such as lupus.
Lupus is a long-term autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack healthy cells. There is currently not a cure for lupus, but treatment can help control symptoms. About 5 million people live with lupus worldwide, however, lupus is a disease that is not very well known.
For the fifth consecutive year, Lakeshore is sponsoring our annual raffle to help raise money benefitting Lupus Society of Illinois (LSI). All proceeds go towards research to find the causes and possible cure of lupus as well as providing resources to healthcare professionals that work to fight the disease. This year there will be five amazing prizes that you could win on September 25. To enter the raffle and help those battling lupus, donate to our team page on the LSI website.
