“I HAVE Lupus, Lupus Does NOT Have Me!”
Mother. Student Nurse. Lupus Advocate.
My name is Xiomara, welcome to “The Purple Purpose”, and thank you for allowing me to share journey! My goal is to become a nurse practitioner of Rheumatology & Alternative Medicine, sharing my journey, as I accomplish my dream, while living with Lupus. The Purple Purpose started off, as a team name I created, when I joined The Lupus Foundation of America, Tri-State Chapter. After going through many obstacles and setbacks, both mentally and physically, I was starting to give thought to giving up. As a result of everything that had happened, and the toll it had taken on my body, I had decided to take a medical leave of absence from nursing school, pushing my graduation date back a year. Keep following for updated media, stories, testimonies, and more! Thank You for taking the time to visit
