If you would like to receive a copy or know of a physician or pharmacy in your area who may have been missed, please contact Irene Driedger at 1-877-566-6123 or idriedger@sasktel.net.

Lupus Information Kit
A free Lupus Information Kit may be requested at our mailing address, toll free phone number or e-mail address listed below. The kit includes basic lupus and membership information, and a complimentary copy of our newsletter, "The Saskatchewan Lupine".

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Lupus SK is proud to say that we are an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. That means a large portion of the funds raised go towards the goals in our mission statement, to provide support for those affected by lupus through understanding, education, public awareness and research. A small amount only, is used for administration. That also means that our volunteers are indispensable! Lupus SK would not exist without volunteers. That is why we need you to please consider joining our team as a volunteer.

New volunteers are always welcome and there are many ways to become involved. Let us know what your talents and interests are and we will find just the right spot for you. We have a lot of fun, we feel connected and the accomplishments are very worthwhile.

If you would like to join us, please contact Irene Driedger at idriedger@sasktel.net or 1-877-566-6123.
