It was just announced that Toni Braxton will be attending the walk as a fellow Lupus warrior herself. The Grammy-winning singer, producer and actress told CBS that she was diagnosed with systemic lupus 15 years ago.
"I've had some serious health complications, including now it's starting to affect my kidneys. ... My skin, my hair, my heart, my vital organs are starting to become affected," she said, according to CBS News. "I love performing. I love touring, but I know I can't do six to seven shows a week. My body's not gonna let me do that. But I always try to find the silver lining. Maybe I can do two to three shows a week."
So, if you are a lupus warrior or no someone who has lupus, come join us this Saturday! You can start your own team, register as an individual, or join 'Team Kayla.'
