Living with Lupus

Dealing with an invisible illness is very difficult, especially when people cannot immediately see what is wrong with you. On the outside you may be the picture of health but on the inside you're body is fighting a constant battle, there is pain, trauma and everyday is an emotional and physical struggle. When the public don't see these things it can often make it harder to deal with.

EverydayHealth posted a video on YouTube about Halee who is a teen living with lupus. She was diagnosed when she was only 12 years old and has since had to give up some of her favorite hobbies. Since her diagnosis Halee has been raising money for the Lupus Foundation of America to aid them in their search for a cure. EverydayHealth set out to help Halee get some of the money, raise awareness and also enable her to take up her hobbies again on her good days.

Here is the video to Halee's heart wrenching story:
