The Lucy Vodden Research Grant Award for Lupus

Named in memory of Lucy Vodden, Julian Lennon’s childhood friend, who lost her battle with lupus in 2009 at the age of 46. Lucy was the subject of a drawing Julian created which inspired his father John to write the classic Beatles song, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Julian serves as the Lupus Foundation’s Global Ambassador and continues to raise awareness about the critical need for an expanded research effort to fight lupus.
