Flight of the Butterflies, Butterflies of Hope Warrior Stories is a lupus awareness campaign sharing stories of the brave lupus warriors. Many don’t understand lupus until they hear the walk of a warrior. Flight of the Butterflies, Butterflies of Hope Warrior Stories is dedicated to sharing those stories in May for lupus awareness month.
Flight of the Butterfly Safinat Abubakar
My Name is Safinat. I have been a lupus warrior for over 14 years now. I am from Nigeria and believe me when I say it isn’t easy to cope with lupus in this part of the world. So far so good been so thankful for life, love and family.
I recently started lupus awareness in Nigeria @lupusawarenessnigeria_ to help warriors or those who have the disease and don’t even know it to be able to get help faster.
For me it took so many years of different medical errors to occur before I was diagnosed correctly.
Right now I have severe alopecia and constant pain in my scalp, I get pretty depressed easily (trying my best to stay happy and grateful) periodic fevers and muscle pain here and there.
I am really thankful and pray that some day we will get a cure for lupus.
Super proud and happy about all you all at lupus in color do!! Keep up the amazing work!!!
