OUR STORY

Almond Eyes Foundation's mission is to restore a feeling of hope and self-confidence to those living with lupus and other health debilitating diseases. We dedicate our efforts to meet the immediate needs of survivors and their families. We network through awareness public campaigns, media relations, social marketing and aggressive outreach efforts to community partners. In addition, the Almond Eyes Foundation exceeded more than 2,350 likes on facebook its first year, meeting a growing demand for information about lupus. 

Almond Eyes Foundation has seen a tremendous growth and interest in signature awareness campaign activities during May-lupus awareness month. During that month alone, the foundation secured 36 media stories. Story placements included Perry Publishing and Broadcasting, The Oklahoma Gazette Magazine, and Splurge Magazine. Not to mention, our founder Mr. Larry Coleman received an impact award and Almond Eyes Foundation was named as the foundation of the year for Humanitarian efforts.

About our founder

Mr. Larry Coleman has been a true champion for the cause since the death of his daughter in 2013. 

Taletha was initially diagnosed at the age 18 with sub-acute cutaneous lupus erythematosus. This type affects the skin, and​ in two years the disease became very aggressive. She was later diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus, which lead to heart and kidney disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. Taletha was a loving young lady. She wanted her father to do what ever it took to bring awareness to lupus. Taletha made her Dad promise to make sure no one suffered alone, she died at the tender age of 22.

In 2014, Larry kept his promise and started Almond Eyes Foundation in honor of Taletha, his sweet little Almond Eyes.

An idea was born

Larry has centered the business model around the fight against lupus. Through his determination and vision, he is committed to raising funds for research, traveling support groups, and healthy living initiatives to serve those affected by lupus. Larry even created a skin and hair product line called System 6 to help his daughter during lupus flares. 

His product has been known to clear up skin rashes and

soothe aching muscles and joints due to lupus and other health debilitating diseases.
