Saddened by Loss of Annie Ravitz, Lupus Champion and Daughter of LRI Board Co-Chair

The Board and staff of the Lupus Research Institute and the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation express our deepest sorrow and heartfelt sympathy to the family of Annie Ravitz who passed away this week. No one fought harder and more bravely against lupus than Annie since she was first diagnosed with this devastating autoimmune disease as a child. And no one supported Annie's courage with more love and dedication than her father, our beloved Board Chair Robert Ravitz, and her late mother Francine Ravitz. Our love and condolences go out to the entire Ravitz family.
