My goddaughter, Breyonah May, was diagnosed with Lupus in April of 2014, after months of feeling tired and not herself. I wasn’t familiar with Lupus either, so, I became educated watching her deal with it on a daily basis. She completed her very first lupus walk in May of 2015, as captain of Team Breey. The next several months were extremely difficult for her, but somehow she was able to remain positive. Unfortunately, her battle with Lupus ended in October 2015, at the age of 22. Team Breey Always was started in her honor.
One thing that I know, is that Breyonah would want us to continue to raise money and awareness for this mysterious, devastating disease. My daughter never gave up, was positive and driven. Team Breey Always is here to stay, come meet us on walk day!!
