Message from the President
Dear Friends of the ALR,
It is a privilege to be President of this groundbreaking organization, especially at such an important juncture — our 10th Anniversary.
During our relatively short history, we have witnessed outstanding growth — from the insightful vision of our founders, to becoming the largest private funder of lupus research in the world.
This has been a very exciting time and I want to thank you for your support. For 10 exceptional years, the ALR — thanks to your generosity — has been the catalyst behind the work of some of the world's most brilliant scientists.
And as we continue to celebrate this significant anniversary, I am pleased to tell you that our Board of Directors has established an anniversary matching gift program.
Every gift made to the ALR — up to $1 million — will be matched by our Board!
I hope that you share my pride in the ALR's many accomplishments — because you helped us realize them.
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude,
Barbara Boyts President, ALR
