May is Lupus Awareness Month and we are thankful we had the opportunity to capture and share the story of Lizeth to help spread awarness. Her story deals with the frustration and pain of struggling with a chronic illness that has no cure but choosing to find power and purpose in it. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the body's immune system to become hypteractive, attacking its normal, healthy tissue. Currently, 1.5 million Americans have been diagnosed, 80% of them being women.
