Live Hope Lupus

Patient Leader

Samantha Wayne started advocating for lupus and other chronic illnesses after she was diagnosed with lupus in 2008. Samantha's YouTube channel was created in 2010 and locally she works on spreading awareness for lupus and other autoimmune conditions. She started her YouTube channel in 2010 shortly after she was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 14. Her goal is to provide support online for anyone who currently lives with a chronic illness or is in the process of being diagnosed. She now shares her journey living with lupus, sjogrens, and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Samantha's videos are educational and shine a light on what it is like living with an illness. Locally Samantha runs a lupus walk which she started in 2010.
