As many of you know, I was diagnosed with lupus back in September 2016 at 22 years old. I've been fighting since to maintain as normal a lifestyle as possible. It's been a hell of a ride between multiple doctors' visits, boatloads of medication trial and error, biopsies, hospital stays, and bloodwork. Lupus is a rarely spoken about disease and also known as an invisible illness. The immune system fights against healthy cells thinking they are viruses, bacterias, etc. It affects many parts of the body and for me that includes my joints, muscles, skin and unfortunately kidneys. A few months ago I was told my kidneys were failing and since then there hasn't been much improvement. This organization means a lot to me because I battle this everyday and most days wake up praying for a "miracle cure" to take all the excruciating pain and exhaustion away. I'm asking for everyone to please share this and if possible make a donation. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. I'm also asking if anyone would like to join me at the 4th Annual Walk to End Lupus Now event on May 5, 2019 at 9am please click on the link and click on our team name, #lupusstrong.
To everyone that has been here for me and supported me and followed my journey along the way I am so incredibly grateful and love you all!! ❤❤❤
I hope to see you all May 5, 2019 on City Island!
