GENERAL RACE INFORMATION
ABOUT OUR BENEFICIARY, MOLLY'S FUND FIGHTING LUPUS:
Founded in 2007, Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus is a Portland, OR -based non-profit that is changing the way people understand lupus, its diagnosis and its treatment. Lupus is a debilitating disease affecting approximately 1.5 million Americans and 90% of those diagnosed are women. Despite its prevalence, lupus is rarely understood and under researched. It can affect any part of the body, resulting in pain, inflammation, and systemic damage. There remains no cure for lupus, and it is estimated that 10-15% of those diagnosed will die prematurely due to complications from the disease.
Our support groups, online and local, serve the entire community of people affected by lupus. Through one-on-one client advocacy we connect lupus sufferers with services to address their medical and overall wellness needs-- like disability application assistance, prescription assistance, and legal consultation. Our Mission: to educate the public and the medical community about lupus, to push for earlier, life-saving diagnoses for those afflicted, and to spur governments and foundations to fund research toward a cure.
