New Orange Lupus Awareness Wristband Supports "LIFE WITHOUT LUPUS"

NEW YORK, NY, December 14, 2004 – A new bright orange lupus awareness wristband, recently unveiled at the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Gala, is now available for widespread distribution. The “Life Without Lupus” wristband promotes awareness of lupus, and urges the public to Get into the Loop and learn about lupus.

Susan Golick, the founder of the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and 2004 Gala honoree, worked with fellow Board member Jennie DeScherer to design the wristbands. “The wristbands were a huge hit at the Gala, and lupus groups around the country are joining the awareness promotion. We offer them to anyone who wants to support Life Without Lupus. All proceeds go to lupus research,” said Susan Golick.

The Foundation is already distributing large quantities of wristbands to members of the Lupus Research Institute National Coalition, the advocacy network of state and local lupus organizations.

You can order your "LIFE WITHOUT LUPUS" wristbands online or by calling the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation. To place your order dial 1-800-74-LUPUS.
