Angel’s Lupus Journey

Patient Leader

My name is Angel Williams. I was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 12 and have been living with it for 20+ years. I have had 13 surgeries, blood transfusions and have been diagnosed with other illnesses in correlation with Lupus. I take 42 pills a day and have Infusions every other day. Despite illness, I keep a positive attitude and encourage others to do the same. It is my desire to touch as many lives as I can! Hopefully my voice will uplift and empower others, helping them to live a victorious life. If I can touch one person, my living is not in vain!

Angel is just like her name. An angel sent from Heaven. She has Lupus, but she goes through life so gracefully. She shares her journey and helps many of those who have Lupus as well. She has such a beautiful spirit and I know she makes a big difference in other people’s lives by sharing her story to the world.  — Quesha
