Peace in the Storm is a free, overnight retreat for women with lupus. This retreat is designed to pamper women living with lupus by providing a relaxing atmosphere for sharing and support from other women, and talk about the need for self-esteem, learning about lupus, and support for a chronic disability.

Last year's retreat was such a success that it's been expanded for 2010. This year 16 women will be chosen to participate in this overnight event. Those interested in attending will be asked to submit a two-page essay describing their experience with lupus. Applicants must have a diagnosis of lupus and be a resident of Indiana. All applications with essays must be submitted by April 15, and winners will be notified by April 30. Mail your information to the LFA office at PO Box 2763, Portage. IN 46368.
