When Lupus LA Founder Daniel Wallace, MD, diagnosed Michelle and Alan Kaye’s daughter Gillian with lupus in 2005, they committed themselves to doing all that they could to find a cure. Their first step was to join Lupus LA, where they both now serve on the Executive Board. In 2008, Alan joined the national board of our parent organization, the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation.
Alan brings leadership experience to both boards. His company, Alan Kaye Insurance Agency Inc., has consulted with families, business owners, and individuals for over 30 years. He has served on numerous boards, including Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors, the Beverly Hills Rotary Club, and the Maple Counseling Center. Michelle, in turn, has held leadership positions at Cedars-Sinai United Hostesses Charities, Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, and the Beverly Hills Education Foundation.
“The strides that Lupus LA and the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation have made in raising both funds and awareness are remarkable. We are eternally grateful to our wonderful family and friends who have given their time and money so generously on our behalf.”
