Traci L. – Diagnosed at age 14
Hello everyone my name is Traci and this is my story. I was at the age of 14 when I had got diagnosed with SLE. At the time we didn't know what it was or what it could do. The doctors told us that I would only live for 9 years and I would never have children. I told the doctor that I would prove him wrong and I have! I'm 44 yrs old and I have 2 children. I've had 15 surgeries and died a few times. My strength comes from my dad from who passed away a year ago from stage 4 bone cancer.
