“Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to five years.”
Talking about the sickness, she said,
“I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life.”
She noted that she paid N1.2m on a treatment yet it did not work as she continually cried in pain. She further disclosed that she is continually in pain.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. It has no cure but can only be managed.
