Stories such as Amanda’s are so encouraging. These stories tend to push up forward and give us hope that we too can make it through our difficult battle with lupus.
“She never complained through the highs and lows,” said Burton police Chief Thomas Osterholzer. “Though she may be small, she knows how to fight the good fight.”
Everyone meet Amanda Eads, a police woman from Burton, Michigan.
Diagnosed with lupus last summer, Eads quickly had to undergo chemotherapy and dialysis because Lupus greatly affected her kidneys.
She suddenly found herself unable to perform the job she had known and loved for nine years. But to much avail, she remained positive and was able to return to work where she was named the Burton Rotary Club’s Police Officer of the Year.
