The Singer Family Fund For Lupus Research at the Montreal General Hospital was created by two incredible people, Rita and Ronald Singer in the year 2000 as an initiative to support the McGill University Health Centre Lupus Clinic (at the Montreal General Hospital). The Singers were intimately familiar with the lupus clinic at the time of the Fund’s inception. Their daughter had been diagnosed with lupus some 15 years earlier at this very clinic, and had been receiving complete, compassionate and effective life sustaining care during this time. Understanding the challenges of continued care for people living with lupus, the Singer Family wanted to give back to this team, particularly in a time of crisis in health care funding. To the Singer family and many other lupus patients, it was critical that the dedicated physicians and staff had access to the resources required to maintain the standard of care and level of research performed at the clinic.
