At the Lupus SK Fall Symposium, October 1, 2011, Dr. Alan Rosenberg recently accepted our $2,500.00 donation, on behalf of the University of Saskatchewan Pediatric Rheumatic Disease Research Laboratory. This research offers exciting hope for the future because not only does it pertain to pediatric lupus patients, but in exploring how lupus first develops, a greater understanding of what causes lupus may be uncovered.
