Overview

"This book from Liz Shaw-Stabler brings passion, guidance and hope to the struggle of people suffering from chronic illnesses. Liz has spent decades battling systemic lupus, even enduring kidney failure and the challenges of living each day after day when she feels ill, and then the near-miracle of kidney transplant - and all of the effectc on the living of life. Liz is greatly admired by all who know her - a fighter, dedicated not only to personally overcoming illness, but also to bringing health care to people of color - a group that SLE strikes particularly hard. Shaw-Stabler is a professional educator and a passionate advocate - devoting hundreds of hours to founding LupusCare, which provides education and group meetings for a community in Los Angeles that is rich in African American and Latino families - a community that needs much better access to health care and health education. This book is another step in the battle. Read it to understand, to learn, and to discover how one person can influence the battle for personal and public health. Finally, read it to be inspired and to be moved to action. This book and its author are national treasures."

    For anyone fighting with the wolf

    My mother lived with lupus for over 30 years, I've been diagnoised for 2.5 years. I read many books and educated my self about this disease. I have online support groups and I have lupus friends on FB. But when I finished reading Liz's story, I found hope because she endured so much and she lives on. She travels, raised a child, divorced and found a new husbnd. Through all she's been through she's happy and her story gave me hope for the moment. She told her story clear and for someone who has just be diagnoised it would help to understand this wolf.
