I was diagnosed with Lupus in January of 2015, although I've been dealing with symptoms since I was 11 years old. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune diease that, in my case, severally damages my skin, joints, tendons, legs/feet, kidneys, eyes and mouth. Although lupus can affect any part of the body, each case is different. There is no cure to Lupus, and it will be with me for the rest of my life. I am currently being treated at Mayo Clinic in Rodchester Minnesota. I am unable to work due to severe sensitivity to uv light (sunlight) and physically labor of almost anykind. My medical bills are piling up and I would be forever grateful for any extra help. Don't feel pressured by any means to donate, simply spreading the word would be great.
