She Blossoms

Patient Leader

Team She Blossoms grew from trying to understand my diagnosis with Lupus, and into a campaign that my friends joined in and believed in with all their hearts. Together, we raise awareness for Lupus and hope that early diagnosis coupled with proper and ethical care can save lives.

Juliet Maruru and 2 of her friends make up She Blossoms in Nairobi, Kenya. Using Twitter and events they work to raise awareness of Lupus - a disease that's little known in Kenya. She Blossoms has few resources available and hardly any financial support, but they keep at it because it must be done to save lives - fighting lupus one word at a time.  — Team
