Lupus Canada Ambassadors
LUPUS CANADA CELEBRITY AMBASSADORS
Lupus Canada is honoured to have four very special people represent Lupus Canada as our Celebrity Ambassadors. Colin Mochrie, Debra McGrath, Patrick McKenna and DeMar DeRozan are helping us create more awareness for lupus by providing their support and sharing the good work we are doing to help those living with lupus.
“As a recognizable athlete in Canada, I thought it is important to get involved to help my mom and aunt who are dealing with lupus. I think it’s important to raise awareness for lupus globally. Whether I support one person, or a thousand people, I’d like to inspire families to overcome their challenges and better understand what they’re facing.”
– DeMar DeRozan
“Having Lupus directly affecting my family makes it easy to be involved with Lupus Canada — but I stay because of all the fabulous work they do”
– Patrick McKenna
“We are involved with Lupus because we really believe that with money and focus, this terrible and complicated disease could become a thing of the past”
– Debra McGrath & Colin Mochrie
“As a lupus warrior, with a platform and opportunities to inspire others, I decided to get out of myself and inspire men like me who don’t really express much about the struggles of lupus, because it isn’t easy to cover. But what I do know is iron sharpens iron and we need more togetherness to be able to have STRENGTH TO ENDURE!!”
– Prosper Laguerre

As part of this initiative we are honoured to have Isaac Hall representing Lupus Canada as our Youth Ambassador.
