I Am LaShawnda Wrice. A Lupus Warrior!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

My name is LaShawnda Wrice and I have been living with Discoid Lupus a.k.a. "Skin Lupus" since July 2009. It took me awhile to come to grips with that. It is a daily journey and apart of my life. 

One of my main missions in life is to raise lupus awareness. Once I came to grips with the fact I have this chronic disease, my passion is to make everyone I know around me aware of the effects and to encourage screening during regular check-up doctor visits. The earlier the detection, the better one will be with living with lupus.

I know many of you are wondering how did I find out I had lupus. Well, it took a couple of misdiagnoses, unfortunately. When I initially broke out on my face (the butterfly rash), elbows and hands I thought it was due to a dog we rescued in my backyard (Long story). But after going to the hospital and being misdiagnosed with food allergies and a reaction to something outside of food, I gave up. The pain got so bad I couldn't write and that wasn't a good thing because I was in the midst of a political campaign where getting sick was NOT an option! So my co-workers, thank God for them, told me to go see a dermatologist. I did and that's who diagnosed me with lupus.  It took her three rounds to figure out why I was looking and feeling the way I did, but she was determined to find out! She SAVED my life! Who was it? Well, before I reveal this magnificent awesome doctor, make sure to have her on your physical team! So... here ya go, click here.
