I am 15 years old, and was diagnosed with SLE in December 2014. It is in my brain, heart, blood, lungs, liver, and its starting in my kidneys as it is really aggressive. I was given steroids, IVIG, and many more treatments, but they didn't work. Chemotherapy was my last option, so I took it. There will be 6 high doses of chemo. I am on round 2, and have lost all my hair, and my stomach is paralyzed, but I wont give up! Till I am free!! Lupus is horrible!! We need a cure! ~Ana
