Perhaps one of the most famous known faces of Lupus is Toni Braxton.
Braxton revealed her diagnosis at a lupus benefit November 2012, she tweeted: “Lupus medication actually causes most women to gain weight. But we’re still fabulous! I’m going to work it on out.”
She was quoted during an interview saying, “Lupus is like the worst flu you’ve ever had in you life,It completely drains you.”
Just before the diagnosis, she was performing nightly at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino to crowds of adoring fans. She said doctors told her the illness meant she may never be able to do that again.
Looks like she has proved them wrong. Help others beat the odds by donating to help find a cure for lupus. http://www.lupus.org
