Criss Cari Fernandez is today’s Purple Butterfly. She lost her mother to Lupus complications on Jan. 6, 2016. Criss found that she too had Lupus when diagnosed in July 2015. Now she struggles with inflammation in her hip that prohibits her from walking. But even though Criss says the disease has completely destroyed her and has caused her to experience the worst pain of her life, she still manages to smile and “keep it cute” (check out her purple hair).

Remember to keep Criss lifted up in prayer my fellow lupies, as she embarks on this new but difficult journey that is Lupus. Take a minute out of your day to watch Criss’s emotional video below. #LupusAwareness!
