LUPUS FOUNDATION OF ARKANSAS, INC.

The year 2014 is almost over and we have had a busy year.  Just a reminder about #GivingTuesday.  This year it falls on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Lupus patients, please help and support the cause of lupus.  We have worked since October 1993 so very hard as volunteers and I am happy to say that we have made many accomplishments.  People are finally taking this cruel complex disease of lupus serious.  Research in Little Rock was a big milestone.  Although the research did not work, we are praying that will not be the end of lupus research in Arkansas.  The first medication in over 50 years for lupus was approved  by FDA March 2009 and lupus has been around for many years.  It is difficult for me to believe that lupus patients only had aspirin for the excruiating pain they had to endure, but that is true.

MAYFLOWER, Ark. (KTHV) – The central Arkansas community still needs the help of lending hands following April’s deadly tornado.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- After nearly 8 years of planning and construction, the Little Rock's Firehouse Hostel is nearly complete.

Developers John Fordyce and Greg Hart told THV that the exterior work is done and electrical work will finish up in October meaning the main goal is furnishing the inside of the hostel. "The beds will have a full size on the bottom and then these here are for stacking," said Hart. "It's not like a regular hotel. It's not meant to be a hotel."
