Happy 1st Birthday, "On the Road to a Cure"

It’s a milestone I don’t think I expected. Today – June 20 – is the 1st birthday of the LFA’s blog, On the Road to a Cure.

More than a year ago, a group of LFA staff sat in a conference room, trying to figure out other ways in which to engage people living with lupus. “Why doesn’t the LFA create a blog?” someone suggested. More than 155 posts later, here we are.

I think it’s been a great year. People are reading this, and seem appreciative of the info that we’re sharing. And through the wonders of the blog, I have been fortunate enough to reach out to many of you – both here in the states, and around the world – who are living with lupus. It’s been amazing! And as a result of that contact, our blog now boasts links to almost 50 lupus bloggers worldwide.

Although I am out of the office today, I did want to say thank you to everyone who reads our blog. Together, we share a journey to raise public awareness about lupus, and to one day find a cure for this disease.

Have a wonderful weekend,
