Through the CAVATA blog I’ve introduced to you many talented musicians, artists, performers and fellow entrepreneurs. Although each featured post is important in spreading our message of creativity through the arts, this post is extra special to me; I would like to introduce you to an amazing woman named Tiffany.
Tiffany and I met through Twitter a few months back. We’re both energetic, creative, empowered people but we also share a special bond; we both have Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythmetosus.) That’s actually how I found Tiffany on Twitter, by searching for other people who were talking about life with Lupus. I found out about Lupus a few years ago through my step-mother who also has the disease but its amazing how many people are unaware of what Lupus is and how it affects people. I feel extremely lucky to feel as good as I do because some people suffer daily and even die from Lupus-related complications. Still, when people find out I have Lupus I feel like I need to explain what it is because there is hardly any education about this condition. This is why I love Tiffany and appreciate all of her positive energy she puts out into the world in hopes of educating people about Lupus and raising funds for a cure!
Tiffany is also the founder of “Friends Against Lupus.” If you want to learn more about Lupus, how you can help raise money to find a cure or to simply read some incredibly inspiring words that give you that extra lift we all need throughout the day, add FAL on facebook!
Lupus is what’s known as an “invisible disability” because you can’t tell if someone suffers from it just by looking at them. Odds are, you probably know somebody with Lupus. A BIG thank you to Tiffany and a giant Lupie hug to all the Lucious Lavender Butterflies out there.
