Story

By donating to Lichen Sclerosus Support Network (LSSN) for Giving Tuesday, you are funding the development of evidence-based educational content on the diagnosis and treatment of lichen sclerosus. In 2022, LSSN earned official 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit organization, laying the foundation for growth as we pursue our mission.

Since 2020 when the co-founders first came together, LSSN has pursued its mission to empower people with lichen sclerosus by providing evidence-based education. LSSN is also building an extensive content library to help people cope with all facets of this condition, including mental health, sexual wellness, pelvic floor health, pregnancy, bathroom issues, and more.

This chronic, progressive skin disease affects as many as 1 in 70 vulva owners. While LS is treatable and manageable, too many people are suffering in silence because of a lack of information. Every person affected by lichen sclerosus deserves accurate and thorough information to make sound decisions on their health. 

LSSN believes every provider who treats a patient with or possibly with lichen sclerosus should be well-informed on diagnosing, treating, and caring for that person. That is why LSSN's mission supports providing accurate and evidence-based education to patients and providers.

We do this by:

  • Partnering with medical, healthcare, and wellness providers and practitioners to develop and present evidence-based education materials to support patients’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
  • Targeting spaces where teens and adults are hungry for information - Google, YouTube, Instagram, podcasts, and blogs.
  • Producing annual events like the Holistic Healing Summit to increase LS awareness and community support.

For 2022, our fundraising goal for Giving Tuesday is $10,000. This money can help us commission new education materials, fund operational costs to run the Holistic Healing Summit series, or pay for audio editing to produce new podcast episodes for Lichen Sclerosus Podcast.

Every dollar counts. Please give today.

Thank you!
