What do you want others to know about lupus?

It's a tiring illness...literally and emotionally. Support is key! Love and understanding in all areas can make big difference. But if we band together one day... I pray no daughter has to watch her mother suffer will this illness as I have! My mother can't wash her own hair, change her own clothes nor bath her entire body on her own. Help us raise awareness.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

My mother, Lavelle has lupus! She was given five years to live when I was born. I'm 32 and she is 72! It's a tough illness to watch your mother fight and suffer through all your life. She is the strongest woman I know... I think her faith in god along with great doctors has made all the difference! Along with a loving husband of 57 years and 7 great kids!
