In honor of Warriors like Arlene, we will be featuring Lupus Alliance Research as our featured charity this quarter. Five dollars from each Giving Tee will be donated to help find a cure for Lupus.
"I was diagnosed with systemic lupus at the age of 20, after my first auto immune disease, JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis), at the age of 11. It took a full year of tests and various symptoms to finally diagnose me and truly change my life forever. The journey has not always been an easy one but with age, it has allowed me to better understand my body, my diet, and the best way to live my best "normal" life.
Lupus has given me many obstacles to overcome in the past 15 years. Whether it was not being able to sit in the sun anymore, dealing with a low immune system, trial and error of every medication combination, observing stressful situations effect your body leading to loss of hair and that hair never growing back, and ultimately never knowing how you will feel each and every morning. The biggest obstacle of all is not allowing Lupus to be who you are, it's allowing yourself to live the life you've always imagined and have lupus come along for the ride. I've been blessed to not face this journey alone and the support of my friends and family has been the best medication I could ever ask for.
I have decided to take my positive outlook on such a negative disease and channel it into a Lupus lifestyle platform with my Instagram Lupus l.e.f.f.t (lifestyle, experience, fashion, food, travel). I hope to shine a positive way of life for those dealing with such a life changing disease and show that we can do anything we put our mind to."
