Meet Our Founder

Sharifah Kee, Lupus Warrior

Drawing from her 26-year career as a medical professional and the profound understanding of the physical and emotional toll of Lupus, Sharifah founded LupUs Together with unwavering compassion and determination. The organization's journey began with a resolute commitment to advocating for improved support systems, education, and resources for those affected by these conditions.

In 2023, after ten years of battling Lupus, Sharifah decided to transform her personal struggles into a powerful force for change. Fuelled by a passion to empower others facing similar challenges, she set out on a mission to create an organization that would uplift and support Lupus warriors and individuals impacted by autoimmune diseases.

United by the strength of Sharifah Kee's vision and the unwavering commitment of our team, LupUs Together is a testament to the power of compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. We strive every day to create a brighter and more compassionate future for all those on their journey with Lupus, leaving an indelible mark on the lives they touch.
