Formed in 1977, the BC Lupus Society is the oldest Lupus not-for-profit organization in Canada. We are dedicated to conquering one of the most unpredictable and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. Children, women and men can all get lupus and there is no cure.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that attacks any organ of the body in unpredictable ways. Diagnosis is difficult because symptoms can vary widely between individuals. Delay in diagnosis can lead to organ failure and death.
