Lupus is a illness that is in a constant state of flux. There are times when the symptoms are mild and manageable and in an instant, can change leaving the patient in bed and barely able to care for themselves or in our lupie mom’s cases, their children. Getting insurance to cover in-home care in most cases is a difficult process of requests, waiting periods, denials, appeals etc. This leaves Lupus patients in a precarious position. When a flare slams a patient, there is very little warning to make preparations for assistance. Hiring outside help is an option, but between medicines, doctors, therapies, etc., that may not be an option on a disabled person’s income. The Charm Foundation does not believe that any human being should be left to suffer alone and abandoned and in danger without assistance because of their inability to pay. We are looking for funding to provide assistance on a case by case basis at little to no cost based on the patient’s ability to pay.
