Lupus: The Shanelle Gabriel Story

Shanelle is so full of life. She is spunky and talented. She is a singer, spoken word artist, and a lupus advocate. Her story is hands down one of the best I’ve heard thus far. I love her positive outlook on life despite living with lupus. I love that she freely lives and does not allow lupus to define who she is or how she goes about living her life. Be sure to watch Shanelle’s story below. I promise you it will be a treat! Enjoy 

“If you just found out that you have lupus, DON’T FREAK OUT! Do not look at the worse cases and think that that’s automatically going to be you. You cannot look at anybody else’s situation and compare yourself to it…” -Shanelle Gabriele.

“Once I stopped being afraid, I found other passions that I never thought were possible” -Shanelle Gabriel.
