I’m a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a poet, a philanthropist, a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, member of Order of The Eastern Star, and I have Lupus. I was diagnosed with Lupus in July 2011, after many years of unexplained illnesses, surgeries, and hospital stays.
My Lupus was discovered after a year struggle with a rash on my face that was spreading to my neck and chest. I had begun to also suffer from migraines, fatigue, joint pain (in my ankles and wrist), shortness of breath, and excessive sweating. I knew nothing about Lupus except it was a disease that Toni Braxton suffered from. I initially thought there was a magical pill I could take to get rid of it. I was informed that Lupus has no cure; it’s a disease I will live with for the rest of my life until a cure is discovered. I have dedicated the rest of my life to be a face-IN YOUR FACE- activist for a cure- I'm not hiding it-I'm FIGHTING it!
