When I was diagnosed in 2016, my life turned upside down and although I had an amazing support system, they still didn't; understand. I searched for others with lupus but couldn't find anyone. At that point, I vowed that no one else would ever have to fight this ridiculous disease alone. I will be the voice for those that don't speak up. I will be the support system that they need. I will help them with their questions. Lupus advocacy is my passion. I use every platform I can spread awareness.
