This is my chapter   |   
Sarah CrawfordMy name is Sarah and I was diagnosed at the age of 24. Being an only child, this really took a toll on my mom so I stayed strong for her and used her living with Crohn's disease as an inspiration to keep going when I wanted to give up. We were going to countless specialists and appointments while I was in renal failure with many other systems affected. Today, I have been in remission for almost a decade and continue to take Mycophenolate along with many other medications to control my lupus!!! I like to say, "We might have lupus, but lupus doesn't have us."
