NFL star Jonathan Babineaux has joined forces with the , Georgia Chapter to help raise awareness for lupus, one of the least recognizable and most misunderstood diseases affecting 55,000 Georgians and more than 1.5 million Americans.

Jonathan is now assisting Georgians by helping highlight the programs, services and events provided by the Georgia chapter.
The Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter (LFAGA) is the only statewide valuable resource for lupus patients, providing thousands with educational information, physician referrals, resources, support groups and educational programs. 90% of every dollar raised stays in Georgia to support chapter programs.
