The Unseen Battle: Living with Lupus

Living with Lupus is like being trapped in a war zone within your own body. Every day, individuals diagnosed with this chronic autoimmune disease fight against debilitating symptoms that can affect any organ or system in their body. Lupus warriors face an invisible opponent that causes body aches, fatigue, joint pain, and the constant fear of flare-ups. But behind these struggles lies a strength that can inspire the world.

Lupus affects approximately 5 million people worldwide, with 90% of cases being women. This disease knows no boundaries and can strike anyone regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. Although the exact cause of Lupus remains unknown, research suggests that it is a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors.

One of the most affected organs in Lupus patients is the kidneys. Lupus nephritis, an inflammation of the kidneys caused by the disease, can lead to severe damage and eventually kidney failure. For individuals like Sarah Johnson, a kidney transplant became their only hope for a second chance at life.

The Miraculous Gift of Life: A Kidney Transplant Journey

Sarah Johnson, a brave Lupus warrior, battled with the disease for years until it started affecting her kidneys. Gradually, she experienced renal failure, causing her health to deteriorate rapidly. Sarah's only chance for survival rested on receiving a kidney transplant.

After years of waiting on the transplant list, a miracle happened. Sarah received the call that a compatible kidney had become available. The overwhelming mix of emotions – excitement, gratitude, and nervousness – consumed her as she prepared for the life-changing procedure.

The kidney transplant surgery was a success, and Sarah woke up to a new chapter in her life. However, the journey to recovery was not an easy one. Along with the intensive post-transplant care, Sarah had to navigate the lifelong commitment to taking immunosuppressant medications and regular check-ups. Despite the challenges, Sarah remained grateful for the incredible gift of life she had received.

A New Lease on Life: Post-Transplant Optimism

With her new kidney giving her a new lease on life, Sarah's perspective changed. She realized the true value of each day and became determined to make the most of her second chance. Sarah understood that her journey was not just about surviving but also about thriving.

She embarked on a mission to raise awareness about Lupus and the importance of organ donation. Sarah started sharing her transplant journey and experiences on social media platforms, touching the lives of thousands around the world. Her story of resilience and hope infused others with the courage to fight their own battles, instilling a sense of optimism in the face of adversity.

Throughout her ongoing battle with Lupus, Sarah continues to overcome the challenges thrown at her, one day at a time. Her unwavering spirit motivates others to embrace life, no matter the obstacles they face. Sarah's journey is a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit - a reminder that there is always hope, even in the darkest of times.

"Life is a precious gift. Embrace it fully and inspire others to do the same." - Sarah Johnson

Living with Lupus and undergoing a kidney transplant has taught Sarah the importance of cherishing every moment. Her story serves as a beacon of hope for those battling chronic illnesses, reminding them that they are not alone. Through her advocacy work, Sarah hopes to encourage more people to become organ donors, giving others a chance at life, just like she received.

In the summer of 1974, Jill Sauceman was ready to begin the nursing program at East Tennessee State University. During her college physical, at a small medical clinic in Nickelsville, Virginia, her doctor noticed something out of the ordinary. Suddenly, Jill's future plans were put on hold, when he discovered that her kidneys were not functioning properly. He diagnosed her with lupus nephritis, a disease she had never heard of before. Instead of preparing for college, she was made acutely aware of her own mortality at a young age. She was told that within ten to fifteen years of the diagnosis, she would be on dialysis or would require a kidney transplant. She fought through total hip replacements and debilitating flare-ups of lupus and managed to save her increasingly weakened kidneys until 2014, when she received a life-saving kidney transplant from an anonymous donor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. At the time, her kidney function had deteriorated to less than seven percent. This book recounts her life story and how, in 1978, she met the person who would help her through the struggles and celebrate her triumphs. The marriage of Fred and Jill Sauceman has survived for almost forty years. Advised by a family doctor never to marry her, Fred ignored that advice and followed his heart. This book also sends a strong message about the need for organ donation. As Jill's transplant surgeon says, too many valuable organs are being buried. All proceeds from CHASED BY THE WOLF will benefit the renal transplant program at Vanderbilt.
