Date:3/26/2008

WASHINGTON, March 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Michael D. Farley has joined the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. national office in Washington, DC as the organization's Chief Operating Officer, where he will be responsible for the Foundation's overall organizational administration and field development. Farley has expertise in administering major national voluntary health organizations, including serving most recently as the interim CEO and Chief Community and Corporate Relations Officer for the American Diabetes Association. He also has served as Senior Vice President of Development with the USO World Headquarters, and Vice President for Field Development at the American Red Cross.

Farley will be responsible for the LFA's organization-wide operations and development, including research, public and professional education, internal and external communications, marketing, fund development, strategic partnerships, public policy, field operations, finance, and administration.

Founded more than 30 years ago, the LFA is the foremost national nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus and for providing support, services, and hope to all people affected by lupus. The LFA operates programs of research, education, and advocacy, and has a nationwide network of nearly 300 chapters, branches, and support groups.

In announcing Farley's appointment, LFA President and CEO Sandra C. Raymond cited Farley's extensive expertise in nonprofit administration and field development. "Michael Farley has 25 years of leadership in senior management positions with major national nonprofit organizations," Raymond said. "His experience will be instrumental in helping the LFA meet its critical priorities which are focused on increasing public and private sector support for medical research and expanding support and services to individuals who are affected by lupus."

Farley said this truly is an exciting time to join the Foundation. "New research initiatives hold promise for extraordinary advances in diagnosing and treating lupus. New information is being discovered about the causes of lupus, directly affecting more than 1.5 million Americans. New therapies are ready to emerge that will help manage and control this life-diminishing and life-threatening disease," said Farley. "The LFA is preparing to take advantage of these wonderful advances, and I am honored to do my part in supporting our leadership, scientists, and patient advocates across the country."

Lupus results from an unbalanced immune system that can be destructive to any organ or tissue in the body. Lupus is unpredictable and potentially fatal, yet no satisfactory treatment exists.
